        January: Hunting An Almanac of Twelve Sports

      London: William Heinemann, 1898. Archivally double-matted and framed in 1 inch black Eastlake-style moulding with conservation glass. Sized to 15.5 x 17.75 inches. First printing Fine A Fine original color-printed lithograph. Quarto (9.75 x 12.25). Archivally double-matted and framed in 1 inch black Eastlake-style moulding with conservation glass. Sized to 15.5 x 17.75 inches. William Nicholson (British 1872-1949) gained notoriety as a beloved portrayer of British Victorian culture with his dignified caricatures of both the pillars of society and the lay folk. His woodcut portraits of Queen Victoria, James McNeill Whistler, and Rudyard Kipling, from which this print was inspired, were both traditional yet innovative. Referencing the subculture of the late 19th Century Parisian Cafe society through the poster advertisements, and the work of Toulouse-Lautrec, Nicholson's mid-tonal compositions honored the void as well as the light. His revolutionary technique of carving away wide sections of block introduced a modern perspective to the traditional art of portraiture, caricature and book illustration.

These are the disbound pages from English Portraits, with seventeen of Will RothensteinÕs lithographs of well-known persons of his day, along with a page of complimentary comments about each person. Rothenstein (1872-1945) was famous for his portraits, and painted Albert Einstein, T.S. Eliot, Thomas Hardy, W.B. Yeats, and Oscar Wilde among many others. Both his painted works and his prints display his great sensitivity and artistic mastery. He was also a friend to many prominent figures of his day, including Max Beerbohm, Joseph Conrad, and H.G. Wells. This group from English Portraits are as follows: Charles Ricketts and Charles Shannon, Sir Frederick Pollock, Thomas Hardy, Sir F. Seymour Haden, William Archer, The Right Rev. Dr. Creighton, The Marchioness of Granby (Violet Lindsay), The Right Hon. W.E.H. Lecky, John Singer Sargent, Arthur Wing Pinero, William Ernest Henley, Sidney Colvin, George Bernard Shaw, Alice Meynell (2 copies), Grant Allen, and Henry James. Each leaf measures 10 x 14.5 inches.

Printed in red and black. Limited edition, one of 256 copies. A felicitous collaboration with Lucien Pissarro, the son of Camille Pissarro, and the founder of the Eragny Press, named after the village in Normandy where his father lived. Indeed, it was Ricketts who encouraged Pissarro to initiate the Eragny imprint, and Pissarro printed sixteen of his books in Vale type. As Gordon Ray noted [THE ILLUSTRATOR AND THE BOOK IN ENGLAND FROM 1790 TO 1914, pp. 160], "If there was a time in which he (Ricketts) was treated as a follower of William Morris, worth a few paragraphs in a summary of the private press movement, this period of neglect has long since come to an end." Spine slightly rubbed head and foot, a few small spots to front board. free endpaper offsetting.

        Album titled "Webereistudien," with printed calligraphic titles, calligraphic manuscript sub-titles and headings, manuscript text, original drawings and diagrams, and mounted samples

      [Werdau, Saxony: circa 1898]. 7 parts in one volume, folio. (18 5/8 x 12 1/2 inches). 7 section titles printed in black within decorative red borders, 234 pages all with printed red decorative borders, including 196 pages with text and integral illustrations (most in red and black, mounted and varnished) and samples (all mounted). Original half purple cloth over green cloth-covered boards, by Aug. Thümmler of Werdau, the upper cover with elaborate blocked lettering at the centre "Höhere Web-Schule / Werdau i[m]. S[axony]", and in small gilt letters at the foot of the upper cover "F.W. Clarenbach". A German-American master-weaver's aide-memoire, with designs of dazzling complexity that presage the work of Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely and others that were to follow sixty years later. The work is presented in seven sections, each preceded by an attractive printed title, but otherwise made up of manuscript material and original artwork. The intention of the compiler of this work was to provide a mass of technical information to students studying textile production, but, time, technical advances and modern sensibilities have rendered technical aspects redundant (but historically interesting), whilst promoting the beautifully executed drawings and diagrams into individual works of art. The drawings of looms in the 'Jacquard' section have a dream-like quality that would have been appreciated (and was emulated) by the Surrealists. The diagrammatic weaving pattern designs, at their simplest, have the quality of fine folk art, whilst, at their most ornate they present a visual feast that is a match for the work of the Op Artists of the second half of the 20th century. The uniformly high level of the work in this album supports the theory that the compiler, F.William Clarenbach, was an instructor rather than a student at the 'Höhere Web-Schule' [Weaving School] in Werdau. Research shows that he subsequently emigrated to the United States and that his abilities were rapidly recognized by his employers at various mills in Massachusetts: he was an assistant superintendent by 1907, when he was promoted to superintendent, and in 1908 he was promoted to a larger mill, where he was put in charge of the Stevens Mill at North Andover, Mass (Henry A. Rayne American Textile Directory 1908). The individual sections of the album cover various aspects of the manufacturing process and are each preceded by a specially printed title. The details of the parts are as follows: 1. Webereistudien Darstellung des Lehrganges über Bindungslehre. Printed title (verso blank), 112 pages (9 blank, 103 pages with manuscript text, 3 coloured illustrations, 3 uncoloured diagrams, 1 uncoloured table, 418 original mounted coloured diagrammatic designs for weaving patterns [two dated '1898'], 1 mounted cloth sample [also dated '1898']) 2. Webereistudien Darstellung des Lehrganges über Austerentwerken. Printed title (verso blank), 16 pages (6 pages blank, 10 pages with manuscript text and 21 mounted original coloured designs of cloth on paper, 1 mounted sample of cloth ). 3.

Printed title (verso blank), 24 pages (3 pages blank, 21 pages with manuscript text and 5 original pen and ink drawings of a loom [4 full- page], 22 original mounted coloured diagrammatic designs weaving patterns [1 folding]). 4.

        Textile Manuscript

      1898. A Wonderful Late Nineteenth-Century Jacquard Weaving Manuscriptwith 106 Fabric Samples Affixed[TEXTILE MANUSCRIPT]. [BERGIER, M.]. Cours de theorie pour le tissage [Lectures on the Theory of Weaving]. Professe par J. Berjon. Fait par M. Bergier. [Lyon]: 1898.Calligraphic manuscript in French on paper with numerous detailed illustrations of weaving patterns and looms and with 106 fabric samples affixed. Large folio (17 x 11 9/16 inches; 432 x 293 mm.). Written in black ink within a black ruled border, diagrams with additional color. [174] leaves, plus a final leaf blank except for rules. Most leaves with writing on both sides. Affixed to the verso of the title is a portrait of “A. Thiers/Président de la République Française/1872” woven in silk by Carquillat from the portrait Bruyas (measuring 10 7/16 x 8 1/2 inches; 266 x 216 mm.).Bound in contemporary quarter green roan over green pebble-grain cloth boards. Spine with black sewing threads visible and with three green roan blocks ruled and lettered in gilt (from top to bottom: “Lyon/1898,” “Théorie de Tissage,” and “M B”). Marbled endpapers. A wonderful example, exceptionally fine and clean. Housed in a matching cloth slipcase. Together with a large oval piece of fabric (17 1/4 x 11 inches; 435 x 280 mm.).This highly technical manuscript, which Bergier completed under Berjon, displays an incredible amount of detail and precision. It contains numerous diagrams of looms and of Jacquard punch cards, weaving pattern cards, and written instructions for setting up looms in order to weave a variety of patterns upon different textiles. Bergier details the composition (both patterned and plain) of various types of silks, taffetas, velvets, serges, damasks, etc., giving instructions on each method of weaving, and often showing the positioning of the silk strands, through the use of figurative and graphical diagrams. This is accompanied by an actual sample of the finished fabric.The manuscript begins with a description of the textiles used in the manufacture of different fabrics, including silk, wool, cotton, linen, hemp, jute, and ramie (“Description sommaire des textiles les plus employés à la fabrication des tissus usuels)” and a discussion of the theory of fabric production (“Théorie de la fabrique”). It is then divided into seven chapters, each with a special title-page:“Cartons d’armures”; “De composition des armures”—with sixty-six swatches affixed; “Rapport de la mise encarte avec le lisage, le carton, la mecanique et le tissu” ; “Cartons de façonnés”—with seven pattern cards affixed; “Empoutages”—with nine pattern cards affixed; “De composition des façonnés” —with twenty-seven fabric swatches and twenty-six pattern cards affixed; “Gazes anglaises”—with thirteen fabric swatches and four pattern cards affixed.Born into a Lyonnese family of weavers, Joseph Marie Jacquard (1752-1834 ) “was inspired by Vaucanson's punched-card loom to invent the Jacquard attachment, which caused any loom that used it to be called a Jacquard loom. The attachment was an automatic device that for the first time allowed a single operator to control from the loom all the movements involved in the production of complex woven patterns. The Jacquard loom reduced the amount of redundant manual labor that had previously been required in weaving, lowering labor and manufacturing costs and reducing physical hardship for the textile workers. It served as the catalyst for the technological revolution of the textile industry in the nineteenth century. Jacquard developed the idea for his invention in 1790, but because of the French Revolution did not exhibit it until 1801. Jacquard was granted a patent for his invention in 1803; in 1806 his loom was declared public property, and Jacquard was awarded a pension and royalties on each machine sold. Under the terms of Jacquard’s pension he was required to introduce his technology to the textile industry of Lyons. During his first efforts, workers rioted out of fear of losing their jobs to the new technology, and at one point Jacquard had to flee for his life. However, he persevered and by the year 1812 there were eleven thousand Jacquard looms operating in France. By the time of Jacquard’s death in 1834, twenty thousand Jacquard looms were installed in the Lyons region alone. Jacquard’s invention made use of a punched-card system for storing and generating patterns. In the production of designs different cards were tied together by ribbons and hundreds of cards could be used in elaborate designs. Charles Babbage later incorporated punched-card technology as a method of data and program input in the design of his Analytical Engine…For use in the United States Census of 1890, Herman Hollerith developed electrical machines for tabulating data stored on punched cards. Hollerith’s company eventually evolved into IBM. Punched-card tabulation remained a primary means of data processing until it was phased out around 1960” (Diana H. Hook and Jeremy M. Norman, Origins of Cyberspace: A Library on the History of Computing and Computer-Related Telecommunications, pp. 261-262).

        The Spectator. In eight volumes

      London - John C. Nimmo, 1898 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition andcomplete set of the hugely popular eighteenth-century periodical, in fine bindings. First Edition. Complete in eight volumes. Each volume features tissue-guarded portrait frontispieces and additional titlepages with vignettes. Portraits include: Joseph Addison, Richard Steele, Eustace Budgell, John Hughes, Thomas Tickell, Thomas Parnell, Henry Grove, Zachary Pearce.

Volume VIII contains an index to the rear. 'With an introduction and notes by George A. Aitken, author of 'The Life of Richard Steele', etc'. The Spectator was a daily publication of 171112, founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England after they met at Charterhouse School. Each 'paper', or 'number', was approximately 2,500 words long, and the original run consisted of 555 numbers. These were collected into seven volumes. The paper was revived without the involvement of Steele in 1714, appearing three timesweekly for six months, and these papers when collected formed the eighth volume. The stated goal of The Spectator was 'to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality. . . to bring philosophy out of the closets and libraries, schools and colleges, to dwell in clubs and assemblies, at tea-tables and coffeehouses'. One of its functions was to provide readers with educated, topical talking points, and advice on how to carry on conversations in a polite manner. In keeping with the values of the Enlightenment philosophies of their time, the authors of The Spectator promoted family, marriage, and courtesy. Condition: In half crushed morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally, smart with some shelfwear only and to the head of the spines only. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean with just the very occasional spot or mark. Several pages unopened. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1898. Later printing. Tipped on to the front endpaper is an autographed letter SIGNED and dated ("April 13, 1886") by the author as "Ouida" and stamped by the North American Review on April 29, 1886. & & The North American Review (NAR) is the oldest literary magazine published in the United States, founded in Boston in 1815 by William Tudor (1779-1830), its first editor. The magazine had a significant list of contributors, including the likes of William Cullen Bryant, Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Walt Whitman, and Ouida on several occasions. Publication was suspended between 1940-1964 after the magazine's owner, J. H. Smythe, was revealed to be a Japanese spy. The NAR resumed publication in 1964 at Cornell College, with editorship assumed by the poet Robert Dana, until the college sold the rights to the University of Northern Iowa four years later, where it continues to operate.& & The first mention of Ouida in NAR seems to have come from Rhoda Broughton in the May 1877 issue, on the topic of censorship of the author's novels. Marie Louise de la Ramee, who wrote as Ouida, would have then been 38 years old. Throughout the late 1870s and into the early 1900s, she would continue to contribute to the magazine, becoming well known for her provocative, sexually inclined adventure literature. "Under Two Flags" has been adapted to film on several occasions, including short-length features, beginning in the early 1900s during the advent of the silent film era.& & Publisher's green cloth, with gilt titles, floral stamps in black on the front board and spine, gilt top page edges. Very Good condition. Slight spine lean, extremities bumped and rubbed, light fraying at the spine ends, front hinge split but solid, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, and slight wrinkle to the front board. The autographed letter is lightly toned and has a few small chips at the corners. A nice example of an early piece by this understated author, and a most uncommon autograph.

Beardsley lived only long enough to complete eight out of the 24 drawings planned. There are actually six large pictorial initials, plus the frontispiece and the cover design. The illustrations accompanying the initials are unusual for Beardsley in that they are shaded drawings. Only the frontispiece is a line drawing, with intricate hatching. Fine in vellum boards, which are slightly bowed, with Beardsley's all-over design in gilt.

        Calendario dell' Anno 1899, together with original artwork

      Rome: Società Editrice Dante Alighieri, 1898. Oblong octavo. (60)pp. One of 200 copies. Illustrated with seventeen chromolithographed plates, which accompany a series of musical arrangements by Salvatore Saya, with lyrics by the Italian poet Ugo Fleres. Together with twenty-one of Giuseppe Cellini’s original watercolor and ink drawings for Calendario dell’Anno, 1899, of which three were not used, and one is a duplicate. Each measures about 9 1/2 by 8 3/4 inches; the panels for the months of the year have, in almost all cases, placeholder text handwritten by the artist that was replaced by type in the final version. Cellini is perhaps best known for the frescoes that decorate the Galleria Sciarra in Rome, which blend influences of English Pre-Raphaelitism with the artistic traditions of the Italian Renaissance. These lovely, intricate calendar illustrations also clearly demonstrate the sway that the Renaissance aesthetic had on the Arts and Crafts movement, with elaborate floral and foliate designs, initials decorated with interlacing, and symbols for each sign of the zodiac, all in regal shades of red, blue, green, and gold. In the design for April, daisies bloom and birds perch amidst the interlace of branches that adorn the letter “A.” Printed Calendario bound in stab-sewn printed stiff card wrappers, which show wear and tears to the spine and the top of the front cover where it meets the spine. Drawings mounted to heavy paper backings, which show some wear to edges and have holes through top corners where they were once affixed to a surface.

        The Poetical Works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti

      1898. In A Graceful Art Nouveau Binding By Riviere & Son[RIVIERE & SON, binders]. ROSSETTI, Dante Gabriel. The Poetical Works… London: Ellis and Elvey, 1898. A new edition. Octavo (7 1/4 x 4 1/2 in; 182 x 115 mm). xxxi, [1], 380 pp. Portrait frontispiece with facsimile signature and tissue guard. Bound c. 1900 by Riviere & Son in an Art Nouveau-inspired design of full crimson morocco with green morocco grape leaf inlays and gilt grapes at corners with fine gilt curlicues and gilt stamped ornaments along the inner double fillet border. Gilt-dotted raised bands. Four green morocco grape leaf inlays and fine gilt stems to compartments. Turn-ins with triple ruled borders and three gilt-stamped grape leaves to outer corner. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Gilt rolled edges. Wee owner's label to front free endpaper. A fine copy.Robert Riviere (1808–1882), bookbinder, was born in London in 1808. On leaving school, in 1824, he apprenticed with Messrs. Allman, the booksellers, of Princes Street, Hanover Square. In 1829 he established himself at Bath as a bookseller, and subsequently as a bookbinder in a small way, employing only one man. But not finding sufficient scope for his talents in that city, he came in 1840 to London, where he commenced business as a bookbinder. The excellent workmanship and good taste displayed in his bindings gradually won for them the appreciation of connoisseurs, and he was largely employed by the Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Christie-Miller, Captain Brooke, and other great collectors. He also bound for the queen and the royal family. In the Great Exhibition of 1851 he exhibited several examples of his skill, and he obtained a medal.The bindings of Riviere, in the quality of the materials, the forwarding, and in the finish and delicacy of the tooling are deserving of almost unqualified commendation. His bindings are wonderful specimens of artistic taste, skill, and perseverance. Riviere bequeathed his business to this son-in-law in 1880, and the name of the firm was changed to Riviere & Son. Bayntun of Bath acquired Riviere c. 1930.

Kauffmann, particularly the spine, offers a fine demonstration of beautiful design and the flawless finishing of the best quality fine-art binders.

        The Germ: Thoughts Towards Nature in Poetry, Literature, and Art

      Portland: Thomas B. Mosher, 1898. Stiff Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 6 of 25 copies printed on Japan vellum and SIGNED by Thomas Mosher. A beautiful book that is the first American reprint of this short lived publication by the Pre-Raphaelite founders. The preface by Mosher calls The Germ Òthe youthful respiratory organ of the Pre-Raphaelites.Ó He says the young men who created this Òforlorn little periodicalÓ were Òpoor, unknown, and in advance discredited.Ó Yet, their ultimate influence over the art and literature of their day was important and lasting. The introduction is from James Ashcroft Noble's "A Pre-Raphaelite Magazine" as revised in his The Sonnet in England and Other Essays (London: Matthews & Lane, 1893) which Mosher heavily annotated in a series of footnotes. The contributions included the first appearance of RossettiÕs Hand and Soul, and The Blessed Damozel as well as several poems by Christina Rossetti written under the pseudonym Ellen Alleyn . The book also contains four reproductions of etchings by Holman Hunt, Ford Madox Brown, James Collinson, and W. H. Deverell. Beige flexible boards with paper wrappers with red title to spine and front panel. The honeysuckle border on the front cover of the wrapper was designed and cut on wood by Charles Ricketts and is taken from an edition of 310 copies of the Vale PressÕs The Poems of Sir John Suckling, 1896. The text is pristine and the pages include numerous headpieces, tailpieces, and decorated initials. Original light green ribbon marker intact. Housed in brown folding case held in brown quarter leather slipcase. Very light scuffing to slipcase. 222 pages. PRERAPH/042607. Very Good.

        Psst...! hebdomadaire illustré. Collection complète du n°1 du 5 février 1898 au n°85 du 16 septembre 1899

      Paris: Psst...!, 1898. relié. 27,5x40cm. Edition originale. Reliure en demi basane brune, dos comportant des traces de frottements orné de fleurons dorés, quelques épidermures sur les plats de papier marbré, coupes frottées et coins légèrement émoussés, reliure de l'époque. La publication de l'hebdomadaire "Psst... !" (de février 1898 à septembre 1899) correspond à une période très précise de l'affaire Dreyfus : celle de la révision. À la suite de différentes révélations tendant à mettre en doute la culpabilité du capitaine, à mettre en cause un autre officier du nom d'Esterházy (d'ailleurs acquitté malgré les lourdes charges pesant contre lui), la fabrication d'un faux « patriotique » par le colonel Henry (qui se suicide), la publication du « J'accuse » de Zola dans le journal L'Aurore, la machine judiciaire se remet en marche. La France est, plus que jamais, coupée en deux. Les caricaturistes sont, eux aussi, divisés. Deux des plus célèbres, Forain et Caran d'Ache, entreprennent de publier un journal afin de défendre l'honneur de l'armée qui, pour eux, se confond avec celui de la France. L'affaire joue le rôle de révélateur des positions politiques. Avant elle, tous les caricaturistes s'entendaient peu ou prou pour faire la critique de la société et de ses injustices. Rare année complète de la revue. - Psst...!, Paris _1898-1899, 27,5x40cm, relié. - relié
