        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1899 : 1899 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition

      1899. Hi, This lot is an 1899 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the fourth year of the hardback and an extremely hard copy to find, especially in this condition. Since 2006 I have seen 6 for sale and one of those was without a plate. The front board is very clean with excellent gilt, the rear board is pretty much mark free and the spint gilt is very bright. There is a very outside chance that the 18 of 1899 has been regilded on the spine but I may be being paranoid. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns in top condition, two small nicks to the front right. The photoplare is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. A rare Wisden in superb condition and a very nice price.

        Joséphine Impératrice et Reine.

      Paris: Goupil, 1899. Large 4to, (4), 271pp. With a color frontispiece portrait and 41 illustrations of which 33 are full-page. Original full dark red straight-grain morocco extra, covers stamped in gilt with the Napoleonic shield, rich gilt borders, backstrip richly gilt and stamped with bees, crowns, and ‘N’s. A sumptuous binding perhaps indicating a de luxe copy. Small patch on the lower cover faded, joints very slightly scuffed, but a lovely copy beautifully bound. First edition, limited to 1200 copies of which this is #6 which may indicate an early issue in the de luxe binding. The original printed wrappers are bound in. A well regarded work on Napoleon’s wife. “Joséphine de Beauharnais was the first wife of Napoleon I, and thus the first Empress of the French. Her first husband Alexandre de Beauharnais was guillotined during the Reign of Terror, and she was imprisoned in the Carmes prison until her release five days after Alexandre's execution. Through her daughter, Hortense, she was the maternal grandmother of Napoléon III. Through her son, Eugène, she was the great-grandmother of later Swedish and Danish kings and queens. The reigning houses of Belgium, Norway and Luxembourg also descend from her. She did not bear Napoleon any children; as a result, he divorced her in 1810 to marry Marie Louise of Austria. Joséphine was the recipient of numerous love letters written by Napoleon, many of which still exist. Her Château de Malmaison was noted for its magnificent rose garden, which she supervised closely, owing to her passionate interest in roses, collected from all over the world.” (Wikipedia).

        Japanische Färbeschablonen. Hundert Muster kleineren formates. In Originalgrösse herausgegeben und mit einer Einleitung versehen von Artur Seemann.

      Plauen im Vogtland, Christian Stoll, 1899. Folio (42.0 x 27.5 cm). Title page with 2 pp. introduction; two loose sheets with Japanese text; 85 (of 100) coloured prints with Japanese stencil designs. In original red cloth portfolio with pictorial front cover mounted. = A rare set of Japanese stencil designs, which are reminiscent, somehow, of the then-popular Art Nouveau style.

The plates were lithographed at the Kunstanstalt H. F. Jütte in Leipzig. It was originally published by Seemann, also in Leipzig, but a printed label of the Stoll firm was pasted over his name, suggesting they bought the rights, or the stock. 15 plates are wanting (numbered 16, 18, 25, 28-30, 43, 45, 53, 58-59, 67, 78, 90, 93), but the vast majority is present. There are no other copies on the internet. A few plates with some marginal soiling; the portfolio rather rubbed. Otherwise a very good copy. Schneider-Henn, 223.

        TALES OF THE WONDER CLUB ..

      [London]: Harrison & Sons, n.d. [1899-1900].. Octavo, three volumes: pp. [1-5] 6-401 [402] [403-404: blank]; [1-5] 6-388; [i-v] vi-viii [389] 390-662 [663-664: blank], 23 inserted plates with illustrations by John Jellicoe and Val Prince after designs by the author, original maroon cloth, spine panels stamped in gold and blind, front panels stamped in gold, olive-green floral pattern endpapers. First edition. "Omnibus collection of 'bloodcurdling' tales with decidedly mid-Victorian flavor, in spite of publication date; set in an old-fashioned frame, too, told 'round the Yule Log at 'Ye Headless Ladye,' a Midlands hostelry of the old coaching days circa 1800, by an informal club of travelers and their hosts. Enlivened by a Dickensean mixture of the cold grue and the grotesquely humorous: like the fat boy, they 'only wants to make your flesh creep.' Notable tales include 'The Phantom Flea' and 'The Spirit Leg' in volume I; 'Execution' and 'The Waxen Image' in volume II; Volume III has no fantasy content being mostly taken up with Gothic melodrama 'The Gipsy Queen.' Literary curiosities which seem to have strayed from an Christmas annual circa 1865 into a triple-decker, probably self-published by the author. Binding, design, and illustrations are archaic for 1899." - Robert Knowlton. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 87. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-50. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 565. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 72. Bleiler (1978), p. 64. Reginald 06648 and 06649. Spine panels of volumes one and three a bit spotted and faded, otherwise quite a nice set with unbroken, tight inner hinges, a clean, attractive set overall. (#128285)

        Sonnets.

      London: Hacon & Ricketts,, 1899. Reprinted from the edition of 1609. Quarto. Original white buckram, titles gilt to spine, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. Housed in a custom orange cloth-backed marbled paper solander box. Woodcut borders and decorations by Charles Ricketts. Contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper. Spine lightly browned, slight rubbing to tips; an excellent copy. First Vale Press edition, limited issue, one of 210 copies, of which 200 were released for sale. Charles Ricketts (1866–1931), was an outstanding art nouveau designer, with notable work for commercial publishers including Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), John Gray's Silverpoints (1893) and Oscar Wilde's The Sphinx (1895). Meeting a wealthy barrister, Llewellyn Hacon, enabled Ricketts to realise his dream of being a publisher and he set up the Vale Press in 1894. Although influenced by the aesthetic movement and by William Morris, whom he admired, his Vale press books are more classical than medieval in style and "the distinct personal element in those books derives from the woodcut designs and illustrations drawn and cut by Ricketts". The fire in 1899 which destroyed his stock, including an unknown number of vellum copies of this work, robbed him of his enthusiasm, and he closed the press with his Bibliography of the Vale Press (1904). This work was edited by a friend and colleague of Ricketts's Thomas Sturge Moore (1870–1944), who contributed to Rickett's art journal The Dial, and helped to edit and translate a number of books for the Vale Press. This copy with an original order form laid-in. From the library, though unmarked as such, of Gary E. Prouk, a Canadian creative director for the advertising agency Scali, McCabe, and Sloves, and collector of fin-de-siècle and private press materials. Uncommon, with nine copies traced at auction.

Lisbon, Miguel Manescal da Costa, 1762. Folio (30 x 20.5 cm). With 21 engraved plates (1 folding), 1 nearly full-page engraving of a compass rose and about 10 woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary or near contemporary tanned sheepskin, richly gold-tooled spine, new endpapers.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 672; Rodrigues 1899 note; Sabin 62883 note; cf. Bosch 144. Third edition of a detailed Portuguese handbook of navigation, primarily concerned with navigation in the Portuguese colonies and former colonies in America (including Brazil), Africa and the East and West Indies. It includes 18 numbered plates containing 36 nautical charts, maps of islands, city plans, etc., most from these regions, and unnumbered 3 plates (1 folding) showing instruments (quadrants, sundials, etc.). The author's father Luís Serrão Pimentel (1613-1679) wrote a handbook of navigation in 1673, but it remained in manuscript until Manuel Pimentel (1660-1719) published it posthumously in 1681. This and his 1699 revised edition were shorter than the present work and had only 2 plates. In 1712, however, Pimentel greatly expanded it and added numerous plates, bringing the book more or less to its present form. With bookplate. Some marginal tears and worm holes restored in the foot margin at the beginning and end, but otherwise in very good condition. Somewhat worn at the hinges and with some scratches on the back board, but binding otherwise very good. A practical Portuguese handbook of navigation that remained a standard work into the early 19th-century.

        The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser (facsimile edition limited to 100 copies, 1899)

      Reproduced by authority of the Trustees of the Public Library of New South Wales, 1899. Angus & Robertson, 1899. Folio, half-crushed morocco over cloth (a few marks), lettered in gilt to the spine, bookplate from the W. R. Griffiths collection to front pastedown, unpaginated, foxing to edges, photo-lithographed by Vincent Brooks, Day & Sons of London. Limited to 100 numbered copies. Scarce. The Sydney Gazette was first printed by George Howe on a small wooden printing press which had been brought to the colony by Arthur Phillip in the First Fleet. George Howe had used the same press to print the colony's first book, The New South Wales General Standing Orders, in 1802, probably confirming him as the colony's second printer (after George Hughes). The establishment of a weekly newspaper in the colony had been an initiative of Governor King, and the publication originally acted as a medium for broadcasting official information about such matters as government proclamations, new civil regulations and court news. The content of the newspaper was under strict government censorship. The newspaper also recorded on a weekly basis all the recent maritime activity at Port Jackson, including shipping arrivals and departures and cargo information. Auctions of goods, sales of land, personal and business notices, and lists of newly pardoned or emancipated convicts were also features of each issue. ‘The importance of the Sydney Gazette as a source of Australian history cannot be over-stated’ (Ferguson, ibid.). As primary documents of early colonial history the issues of the Gazette are unrivalled as a record of important events and daily life. As original examples of The Sydney Gazette were very rare, even in the nineteenth century, this high quality photo-lithographed facsimile was commissioned by the Public Library of New South Wales. Even this is now scarce today, and the Library issued another facsimile in the 1960s. Ferguson 16543 (with a long note concerning its production).
