        Sesame and Lilies with Unto this Last

      London - Sisley's, 1900. London - Sisley's, 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two collections of essays and lectures of social criticism by John Ruskin. From Ruskin's Manchester lectures of 1857, his confidence as a lecturer grew, for he relished the direct contact with an audience, the opportunity to extemporize, and the persuasive effect the immediacy of his presence and delivery had. Such lectures and addresses could then be gathered up, revised, and issued in volume form, and throughout the 1860s this was his method of publication. These lectures should be read as a continuous and developing discourse, rather than as closed studies of fixed subjects. They were critiques both of contemporary culture and of the society that produced that culture -DNB. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally, fine, just a few marks. The front hinge is slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound, generally clean and bright, with a few spots and a little browning to the first and last few pages. Overall: NEAR FINE..

        Les Caracteres de La Bruyere

      Paris - Bibliotheque-Charpentier, 1900. Paris - Bibliotheque-Charpentier, 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leatherbound volume with marble paper covered boards and gilt title to the spine. The volume is in French. Jean de La Bruyre (1645 1696), was a French essayist and moralist. His Caractres appeared in 1688, and at once, as Nicolas de Malezieu had predicted, brought him bien des lecteurs et bien des ennemis (many readers and many enemies). His unpopularity was, however, chiefly confined to the subjects of his sarcastic portraiture, and to the hack writers of the time, of whom he was wont to speak with a disdain only surpassed by that of Alexander Pope. The plan of the book is thoroughly original, if that term may be accorded to a novel and skilful combination of existing elements. The treatise of Theophrastus may have furnished the first idea, but it gave little more. With the ethical generalizations and social Dutch painting of his original La Bruyre combined the peculiarities of the Montaigne Essais, of the Penses and Maximes of which Pascal and La Rochefoucauld are the masters respectively, and lastly of that peculiar 17th century product, the portrait or elaborate literary picture of the personal and mental characteristics of an individual. The result was quite unlike anything that had been before seen, and it has not been exactly reproduced since, though the essay of Addison and Steele resembles it very closely, especially in the introduction of fancy portraits. In the titles of his work, and in its extreme desultoriness, La Bruyre reminds the reader of Montaigne, but he aimed too much at sententiousness to attempt even the apparent continuity of the great essayist. The short paragraphs of which his chapters consist are made up of maxims proper, of criticisms literary and ethical, and above all of the celebrated sketches of individuals baptized with names taken from the plays and romances of the time. These last are the great feature of the work, and that which gave it its immediate if not its enduring popularity. They are wonderfully piquant, extraordinarily life-like in a certain sense, and must have given great pleasure or more frequently exquisite pain to the originals, who were in many cases unmistakable and in most recognizable. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including bumping to the corners and heavy rubbing to the edges of the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and slightly age-toned with the occasional handling mark and some pencil annotations. Overall the volume is in good condition..
