Dumas depended on numerous assistants and collaborators, of whom Auguste Maquet was the best known. It was not until the late twentieth century that his role was fully understood. Maquet is known to have outlined the plot of The Count of Monte Cristo, and made substantial contributions to The Three Musketeers and its sequels, as well as to several of Dumas' other novels. Their method of working together was for Maquet to propose plots and write drafts. Dumas added the details, dialogues, and the final chapters. Maquet took Dumas to court to try to get authorial recognition and a higher rate of payment for his work. He was successful in getting more money, but not a bylinePages ofseven volumes are unopened (as issued), with paper wraps of another two volumes included.

        Collected Works of Pierre Loti

      Paris - Calmann-Levy, 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of the works of Pierre Loti, including 'Les Desenchantees', 'Matelot', 'Le Roman d'un Spahi', 'La Galilee', 'Le Livre de la Piete et de la Mort', 'Ramuntcho', 'L'Inde (sans les Anglais)', 'Journal Intime 1878-1881', 'Au Maroc', 'Fleurs d'Ennui', 'Jerusalem', 'Turquie Agonisante', 'Le Mariage de Loti', and 'Les Derniers Jours de Pekin'. Pierre Loti (pseudonym of Julien Viaud; 14 January 1850 10 June 1923) was a French novelist, naval officer and member of the Academie Francaise. He began writing when, in 1876 fellow naval officers persuaded him to turn passages in his diary dealing with some curious experiences at Istanbul into a novel. He proceeded to the South Seas as part of his naval training, and several years after leaving Tahiti published the Polynesian idyll originally named Rarahu (1880), which was reprinted as Le Mariage de Loti; this was followed by Le Roman d'un spahi (1881), a record of the melancholy adventures of a soldier in Senegal. In 1882, Loti issued a collection of four shorter pieces, three stories and a travel piece, under the general title of Fleurs d'ennui. In 1890 he published Au Maroc, the record of a journey to Fez in company with a French embassy, and Le Roman d'un enfant, a somewhat fictionalized recollection of Loti's childhood that would greatly influence Marcel Proust. A collection of strangely confidential and sentimental reminiscences, called Le Livre de la piti et de la mort, was published in 1891. Includes a frontispiece to 'Les Desenchantees' and publishers advertisments to each. Includes fourteen volumes, each complete in their own right. In French. Condition: In half morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Some marks to the boards and spine and some rubbing or wear to the corners of the boards. Internally, firmly bound, generally bright and clean throughout with spotting to the first and last pages.

        Original watercolour drawings portraying characters from Dickens's Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist

      [c.1900-1930]. 33 original pen-and-ink watercolour illustrations (image size averaging c. 185 × 125 mm), each mounted on a hand-cut french mat, bordered in watercolour. All housed in a red morocco-backed bookform folding case. 14 of the Pickwick Papers illustrations a little spotted, with occasional mild tanning, but overall an excellent set. A lovely suite of watercolour character portraits, from Dickens's Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist, by noted artist Joseph Clayton "Kyd" Clarke (1857-1937). His first Dickens illustrations appeared in 1887 in Fleet Street Magazine, achieving immediate popularity with two published collections appearing shortly after; numerous sets of postcards based on his Dickens drawings were also published. After this initial success Clarke earned his living making watercolour sketches such as these, selling them to and through the London book trade. Even as early as 1890 Clarke's Dickens sketches were being sought by major Dickens collectors such as Tom Wilson. The British Museum acquired a collection of 598 "Kyd" Dickens illustrations in 1910, and the V&A, the Charles Dickens Museum, and the University of Texas (Austin, TX), each have a significant collection. Even today Dickens's larger-than-life characters are largely imagined through "Kyd" Clarke's depictions; in 2012 six of his illustrations were issued as stamps by the Royal Mail to mark the 200th anniversary of Dickens's birth. This is a nice comprehensive collection showcasing "Kyd"'s talent for characterisation. Each portrait has an atmospheric wisp of watercolour around the feet by way of background, is signed "Kyd", named, and placed in its respective book; the characters depicted are, from Pickwick Papers: Mr Pickwick, Sam Weller, Tony Weller, Sergeant Buzfuz, Mr Perker, Mr Bardell, Bob Sawyer, Mr Snodgrass, Dismal Jemmy, Mr Fogg, Job Trotter, Mr Jingles, Mr Jackson, Mr Bantam, Luffey, Mr Dowler, Dumkins, Tommy Bardell, Mr Dodson, Grummer, Mr John Smauker, Blazes, Mr Winkle, and Justice Stareleigh; and from Oliver Twist: The Artful Dodger, Nancy, Fagin, Bill Sikes, Mr Bubmle, Toby Crackit, Mr Sowerberry and Mr Grimwig.

Wilson, was a British journalist and naval historian. The Second Boer War and the earlier, much less well known, First Boer War (December 1880 - March 1881) are collectively known as the Boer Wars. The Second Boer War was fought from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902 between the British Empire and the Afrikaans-speaking Dutch settlers of two independent Boer republics, the South African Republic and the Orange Free State. It ended with a British victory and the annexation of both republics by the British Empire; both would eventually be incorporated into the Union of South Africa, a dominion of the British Empire, in 1910. The conflict is commonly referred to as The Boer War but is also known as the South African War outside South Africa, the Anglo-Boer War among most South Africans.

        The River War, signed and dated by Churchill in the year of publication

      Longmans, Green & Co. This first edition, final printing of Churchill's second book was signed by Churchill on 28 December 1900, during his first lecture tour of the U.S.A. and Canada, for Major-General Sir Gerald Charles Kitson KCVO, CB, CMG (1856-1950), then serving as British Military Attache in Washington, D.C. The author's signature in black ink in two lines on the Volume I frontispiece verso read: "Winston S. Churchill / Dec.28.1900". Signatures in Churchill's early works are scarce, doubly so when dated and contemporary. The signature is in firm and more youthfully rounded script characteristic of his early signatures. The ink is mildly age-toned but quite distinct with minimal age-spreading. Four lines in pencil on the Volume I half title read: "Gerald C. Kitson / Military Attache / Washington / from the author". The same words in the same hand are written on the Volume II ffep. Churchill was just 26 years old. In October he had won his first seat in Parliament partly on the strength of his celebrity as a Boer War hero, having been captured and made a daring escape. Churchill intended his lecture tour to improve his finances at a time when Members of Parliament received no salary. Biographical sources and contemporary Canadian press (thanks to Ronald Cohen for invaluable help) indicate that Churchill lectured at Ottawa's Russell Theatre on 27 December 1900, leaving Ottawa either late afternoon or early evening of the 28th (likely via overnight train), arriving in Toronto early in the morning of the 29th. Before he was British Military Attache in Washington, Gerald Kitson was Commandant of Canad's Royal Military College. Kitson knew Lord Minto, the Governor General of Canada who hosted young Winston in Ottawa. On 28 December, the British Government named Kitson Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George (C.M.G.). This may have been the impetus for Churchill to sign a book for Kitson that day, and makes particularly plausible Kitson's presence in Ottawa, likely at Government House where Churchill was staying. In 1902, Kitson became Commandant of the Royal Military College Sandhurst (from which Churchill graduated in 1894). It was a still very 19th Century Churchill who left this signature in this quintessential 19th Century book. While Churchill was abroad, Queen Victoria died, and the end of her 64-year reign also closed Churchill's Victorian career as a cavalry officer and war correspondent adventurer. Churchill returned to England in February 1901 to take his seat in Parliament and begin a 60-year career as one of the 20th Century's great statesmen. This first edition, third printing of The River War is not only the most scarce issue of the first edition, but also the last unabridged issue to this day. All three printings of the first edition (2,646 total) are virtually identical, issued respectively in November 1899, February 1900, and June 1900. Only 151 third printing copies were bound. This set is in very good plus condition, unrestored, wholly intact, worthy of the author's signature. The bindings are clean with bright gilt, trivial wear at extremities, and slight mottling on the blank Vol. I rear cover. Spine presentation is excellent - nicely rounded and entirely unfaded with only minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The massive weight of the text strained nearly all surviving original bindings. Here the Vol. I front hinge is a little tender but remains firmly attached and the Vol. II binding remains remarkably tight. The contents are excellent, with no additional ownership marks. Very light spotting in Vol. I is primarily limited to prelims and page edges. Light Vol. II spotting is intermittent throughout. All illustrations, maps, and plans are intact, as are the protective tissue frontispiece covers. The original black endpapers are intact, with no sign of typical gutter cracks. Additional detail and images upon request. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.1.b, Woods/ICS A2(a.3), Langworth p.29.
