In the original maroon velvet lined, black cloth clamshell box with morocco and gilt spine label. Shakespeare's tragedy is riddled with sinister gossip and betrayal which ends in a blaze of fury.

        Album, Collection of Coney Island Postcards

      c. 1900-1910. Hardcover. Very Good+. Red cloth, "Post-Cards" stamped in gilt on upper board; 7.75 x 9.75 inches; contains 24 grey leaves, each with 4 postcards (2 on recto, 2 on verso) mounted to the page via corner slits (and, as such, easily removable); 96 postcards in all. Binding broken, with many leaves loose; and brittle, with the occasional broken corner slit. Postcards, however, are in excellent condition, bright and clean -- just a few with maringal handwritten notes, most handwritten on the verso, with the original stamp and postmark. A wonderful turn-of-the-century collection or postcards, featuring images in b/w and full-color, illustrated or photographic, offering numerous views of Coney Island during the day or at night, empty or peopled, aerial or up-close, interiors, exteriors, its architecture, and landmarks. Just a few images repeat -- the swing at Luna Park, for example, is shown once in b/w, and again in color. Sights include Surf Avenue, The Bowery, the Entrance and The Tower at Dreamland, Steeplechase Pier, the Chutes, Culver Depot, Feltmans, the Flip-Flap, and more. Many of the landmarks captured here are no longer with us today, due to fire (Luna Park appears throughout the album, before it was heavily damaged by fire in 1944) and the "development" of Coney Island by Fred Trump (who invited investors to throw stones through the stained glass windows of the dance pavillion before he demolished it -- an interior of the pavillion is included) and a string of NYC officials.

      London: Longmans, Green & Co.,, 1900. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania. Octavo, original green cloth, title gilt to the spine and to the front board with "signature" block, black surface-paper endpapers. Somewhat rubbed, and bumped at the extremities, versos of free endpapers browned, pale toning to the text and a scattter of light foxing, but remains a very good copy. Bookseller's ticket of Alfred A. Seale of Southsea to the front pastedown. First UK edition, second state with the title page a cancel without copyright details verso. Signed on the half-title; "Winston S. Churchill, 1916", and distinctly unusual thus. Churchill's only novel, and his "first book, in the sense that it was well started before the Malakand Campaign got under way" (Woods, Artillery of Words, p.56). Summoned north by Sir Bindon Blood, Churchill declared the novel "indefinitely shelved". A melodramatic tale of a liberal revolution in an autocratic Mediterranean state, "the novel is at once a political testament and a writing-out of a stage of personal development" (p.60). While not exactly repudiating the novel, Churchill did his best to forget it, saying in My Early Life that he had "consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it", consequently signed or inscribed copies are rarely encountered. This copy with a manuscript label to the front free endpaper reading; "To be sold by Auction, Councillor Sydney Gimson offers 10/-". Gimson was the owner of an engineering works and a secularist councillor in Leicester, who involved himself in fund-raising for hospitals during the First World War, and it is possible that Churchill's signature was obtained, and the auction organised, as part of such activities (Newitt, The Who's Who of Radical Leicester).

A fine collection of early reprints of the Walter Crane 'Baby' books. A very fine set, each in their scarce original dust jacket.The Baby's Opera was originally published by Routledge, London in 1877. The Baby's Bouquet was published one year later in 1878 as a companion work to The Baby's Opera. The Baby's Own Aesop was published by Routledge, London in 1886. All three titles appeared in one book entitled Triplets (1894).All three of the dust jackets advertise Walter Crane's Pan Pipes which was published in 1883."The coloured illustrations [in the Baby's Opera] mark the beginning of a subtler colour with wider range, including light blues, yellows, and delicate brick reds. The drawings had an unmistakable influence on Kate Greenaway whose book Under the Window [1879] was to establish her success as an illustratorÂ… The book included a combination of favourite nursery rhymes with accompanying pictures and music, which proved attractive to mothers and children. Crane's sister Lucy did the translating for the music. The five shilling book sold 10,000 copies and was reprinted in a second editionÂ… Crane, who believed good book design to include all aspects of the book, knew the importance of the cover design. Perhaps the French-printed colour poster luring prospective buyers was the inspiration for such a conscious effort by illustrators to design an appealing book cover. This book [The Baby's Aesop] with its short text and large illustrations was designed to appeal to the railway traveller. The design is based upon classical motifs: the Doric-columned porch, the youth in Greek garb, and the overall formal balance." (Engen, pp. 20-21).Engen, pp. 98 & 100 (describing the first Routledge editions).

        The Works.

      Berlin Berlin Photographic Co. c 1900 - Large folio (69 x 52 cm). Edition limited to 200 copies. portrait and 90 mounted photogravures on india paper, some spotting to mounts, portrait lightly offset onto title, original green straight-grain morocco, gilt, by H.Wood, with cloth flaps, uncut, lightly rubbed, flap hinges tender, endpapers creased, a very good example of an uncommon work A fine compilation published shortly after the artist's death. Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, 1st Baronet ARA (28 August 1833 – 17 June 1898) was a British artist and designer closely associated with the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, who worked closely with William Morris on a wide range of decorative arts. As a founding partner in Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. Burne-Jones was closely involved in the rejuvenation of the tradition of stained glass art in Britain. In addition to painting and stained glass, Burne-Jones worked in a variety of crafts; including designing ceramic tiles, jewellery, tapestries, mosaics and book illustration, most famously designing woodcuts for the Kelmscott Press's Chaucer in 1896. In the middle years of the twentieth century Burne-Jones's reputation suffered, along with those of other British Victorian painters. However, two monographic exhibitions — the first organized by the Arts Council and held at the Hayward Gallery in London and at Southampton and Birmingham in 1975–6, and the second to mark the centenary of the artist's death, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and subsequently shown in Birmingham and Paris — have clearly established Burne-Jones as one of the geniuses of British painting. The Tate Gallery's 1997 exhibition, 'The Age of Rossetti, Burne-Jones & Watts: Symbolism in Britain, 1860–1910', represented Burne-Jones as a key figure in the wider context of European symbolism.

      - Forskelligt farvet sten indlagt som mosaik i sort skiffer. 22x15 cm. I sort ramme [28,5x21 cm.]. * pietra dura, (ital. 'hård sten', plur. pietre dure), halvædelsten som agat, jaspis og lapis lazuli, der siden antikken er anvendt til fremstilling af luksus- og prydgenstande. I Firenze grundlagdes i 1588 et fyrsteligt værksted til fremstilling af vaser, skåle, figurer, buster m.m., monteret i kostbare metaller. I tynde skiver indlagdes disse sten ligesom marmor o.l. også som mosaik i træ og sten til bl.a. bordplader og kabinetter, ofte med landskabs-, dyre- eller blomstermotiver. Denne særlige kunstart dyrkes stadig i Firenze. [Gyldendals store Danske].
