        The Sonnets

      [London? c.1900] - Title within decorated border, and decorated initials. Small 4to. [215 x 175 x 15 mm]. [2]ff, 54, [2] pp. Contemporary binding by Bagguley of Newcastle-Under-Lyme (signed in gilt on the front turn-in and with their ink "Sutherland Patent" stamp on the verso of the front free endleaf) of blue goatskin, the covers with a gilt single fillet border, smooth spine lettered in gilt with a single fillet at the head and foot. Vellum doublures elaborately tooled by the "Sutherland" process in blue, purple and gilt to a strapwork design with an arabesque centre, blue watered-silk endleaves, top edge gilt, other edges uncut. (Tips of the corners worn). A fine example of a "Sutherland Binding", using the process patented by George Bagguley in 1895 (Patent Office Specification no.18737). Named after the Duchess of Sutherland, the process involved the application of colour tooling, combined with conventional gilt tooling, on vellum doublures. The best of the designs were by Leon V. Solon, the son of a ceramic artist. Other examples were designed by Dorothy Talbot and Charles Connor. As usual, the exterior has been left plain. George Thomas Bagguley (b.1860) established himself as a bookseller in Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire in 1890. Though the firm appears in the Directories from 1892 until 1940 as booksellers and not bookbinders, binding was carried out on the premises. The work was often of the highest quality, as Bagguley employed a number of the best finishers, including Louis Genth and Thomas E. Caley. Bookplates of Albert Henry Wiggin and "Selden".

        Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm

[1900]; 6" x 8"; pp. [4], v-xvii, [1], 1-464; original pictorial boards; deckled fore-edge; gilt top edge; minor fading to boards; some rubbing to tips of spine (small closed cut to bottom edge); slight vertical line through front cover; pages mostly very clean with a few faint spots of foxing limited to first and last several pages; illustrated with color fronts and 100 b & w full-page illustrations; very good or better. "A New Translation by Mrs. Edgar Lucas." The original Rackham-illustrated "Grimm's Fairy Tales," which brought Arthur Rackham his enormous fame and prompted the publishing of the 1909 deluxe signed edition. The great illustrator himself pointed out in the 1909 edition's prefatory note: "Some years ago a selection of "Grimm's Fairy Tales" with one hundred illustrations of mine in black and white was published - in 1900, by Messrs. Freemantle and Co., and afterwards by Messrs. Archibald Constable & Co., Ltd. At intervals since then I have been at work on the original drawings, partially or entirely re-drawing some of them in colour, adding new ones in colour and in black and white, and generally overhauling them as a set, supplementing and omitting, with a view to the present edition. Of the forty coloured illustrations, many are elaborations of the earlier black and white drawings or are founded on them. The frontispiece, and those facing pp. 34, 70, 94, 104, 116, 118, and 190 are entirely new, and several of the text illustrations also have not been published before. The remaining illustrations in the text have been reconsidered and worked on again to a greater or lesser degree." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

William Harrison Ainsworth (1805-1882) was an English historical novelist . He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of thirty-nine novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Condition: Handsomely bound in cloth with decorative gilt to spines. Externally, in excellent condition with only very slight fading to some spines and the odd very slight mark to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout but with odd spotting and handling marksto some volumes and slight foxing to some endpapers.

        IN BOOKBINDING, THEN, AS IN OTHER CRAFTS

      Doves Press, ca. 3 November, Hammersmith 1900 - Very Rare Unpublished Broadside RepresentingThe Beginning of Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Press. 197 x 267 mm (7 3/4 x 10 1/2"). Single column, 39 lines printed in Doves Press roman type on recto only. ONE OF ABOUT 25 COPIES ONLY, for presentation to employees and friends of the press. Tidcombe DPE-83. Top of verso with thin strip of light mounting discoloration (a small hole in this area skillfully repaired), one faint horizontal crease, a handful of very vague fox spots, but an excellent specimen, very clean and fresh. This is the exceedingly rare first item to be printed at the Doves Press: a passage from Cobden-Sanderson's article on bookbinding that sets forth his credo on the nobility of craftsmanship. In it, he calls for "the transformation of the workshop from a place in which to earn a wage, or to make a profit, into a place in which the greatest pleasure & the greatest honour in life are to be aimed at, pleasure in the intelligent work of the hand, & honour in the formation & maintenance of a great historic tradition." Before printing began on the Press' first book, "Agricola," Cobden-Sanderson decided to test the type. He chose this text to be printed in the form of a broadside that could be distributed and displayed (as our copy evidently was). The type was composed around June 1900 by John Henry Mason, and the page printed sometime in October by H. Gage-Cole, who inscribed and dated his own copies 3 November 1900. According to Tidcombe, "Copies were given to staff, pupils and friends 'to remind us of the spirit in which we should work'"; student Emily Preston "said it was considered a rare possession by the friends to whom it was presented." Only one other copy is recorded at auction since 1975. ONE OF ABOUT 25 COPIES ONLY, for presentation to employees and friends of the press

        1900 ALPHABETS OF THE WORLD - A HANDWRITTEN ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT BOOK DETAILING ALPHABETS FROM ANCIENT THROUGH MODERN ERA BY THE FAMED UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PROFESSOR, AUTHOR AND RENOWNED LINGUIST

      Chicago, Illinois IL 1900 - On offer is an absolutely remarkable handwritten manuscript work of tremendous depth, researched, written and compiled by John C.C. Clarke, A.M, titled "ALPHABETS OF THE WORLD." This book is his original unpublished manuscript and details the alphabets of the world from ancient times; Egyptian hieroglyphics, Egyptian hieratic, Egyptian Demotic, or Enchorial, Egyptian Comparative Tables, Coptic (Egyptian), Ancient Libyan, modern Libyan, Southern Arabic and so on. 479 pp but not all pages are full since Mr. Clarke left space between chapters and spare pages if he overwrote. The work is complete as per the author's handwritten notes. The author has signed the last page stating it is wholly executed and listing the sections of the book for which he claims originality. Scholars and historians of world languages will find this work priceless for its remarkable detail and depth. An added bonus is a wealth of ephemera being newspaper articles about the author and his work. As mentioned the author states "This book, on this date is wholly executed .Sep 21, 1900" as if in preparation for publishing [though it never was]. On the last page Mr. Clark provides a concise biography: he was born in Providence R.I. in 1833. He was a Phi Beta Kappa and got his A.B. and M.A. from the University of Rochester (1859, and 1866).

        Remington Writes About Duplicating Artwork

      1900 - Frederic Remington (1861-1909) was an American painter, sculptor, and illustrator. He is best known for his depictions of the American West, and especially for images of cowboys, Native Americans, and the U.S. Cavalry. This Nov. 24, 1900 autographed letter signed, addressed to Harper Brothers, has fantastic content. It reads: "Gentlemen -- In re-- Mr. Hays desire for a replica of the 9th infantry picture -- while it is very flattering to me -- I cannot undertake it. As you know it is dead against the ethics of the profession to duplicate pictures and would be an injustice to the owner of the present work. Again I doubt my ability to reproduce it with accuracy. I am yours truly Frederic Remington" The work he is referring to here is the painting "9th U.S. Infantry Entering Peking, August 15, 1900." It is currently owned by the Art Institute of Chicago. The letter is written on a 8" x 9 3/4" full sheet of Remington's stationery (his New Rochelle address is embossed in blue), folded in half. It is docketed on the verso "Harper & Brothers Nov 26 9:25 am 1900" Some light smudges, expected creases from mailing, four small glue spots on the verso (no paper loss). Generally excellent condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
