        Youth: A Narrative and Two Other Stories

Publisher's green cloth, front board with decorative floral motif and lettering in black, spine lettered in gilt with black flower decal. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, a hint of light rubbing to the hinges, light offsetting to the free endpapers, a hint of minor spotting to the page edges, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, otherwise fresh and clean pages. Overall, a bright and attractive copy. Wise 10. A collection of three short novels, this volume contains "Heart of Darkness" and "The End of the Tether" in addition to "Youth: a Narrative." The first two novels, both of which had been published separately prior to this publication, feature Conrad's reoccurring character Charles Marlow, who often serves as the author's alter-ego, and confront the dichotomy of East and West. "Youth," the shortest of the three pieces, is narrated by Marlow and tells the story of a young Western man's first trip to the East, while "Heart of Darkness" tells of the haunting story of Marlowe's work an ivory transporter on the Congo River in colonized Central Africa which led him to meet the shadowy Mr. Kurtz. The progression of the main character's age continues in "The End of the Tether," which tells of Captain Whalley as he spends his old age sailing. Together, the three volumes examine the different stages of life and the effect of society on an individual's life.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        A History of the British Army

      London: Macmillan and Co., , 1902-30. London: Macmillan and Co., , 1902-30. 13 volumes octavo bound as 19 (217 × 142 mm), 14 text volumes and 5 map volumes, the maps to volume IV in an end-pocket rather than as a separate volume, contemporary blond half calf, marbled boards, red morocco lettering-pieces, black morocco numbering-pieces, narrow, low bands with a single fine dotted roll, floral lozenge centre-tools to the compartments, arabesqued floral corner pieces linked by a fine dotted roll, dog-tooth roll in blind to the spine and corner edges, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Numerous folding coloured maps as called for. A little light shelfwear, pale toning to the text, but overall very good indeed. Publication began in 1899 and the final volume was first published in 1930; in this set volumes I and II are of the second edition of 1910, the continuation being in firsts. Here this magisterial history - which truly deserves such treatment and very rarely receives it - has been extremely handsomely bound, and is also inscribed by Fortsescue on the front free endpaper of volume I with a paraphrase of Ecclesiasticus XLIV:1; "Laudemus viros gloriosus, et patres nostros in generatione sua [Now let us praise famous men, and our country - rather than "parentes"/fathers - that begat us] Eccles. XLIV.I J.W. Fortescue, May, 1910". "A choice set", as it might have been described in a previous era. Truly a lifetime's work, and to this day an irreplaceable source, written "vigourously, lucidly, and graphically" (DNB), and covering the period 1100 to 1870. Described by Brian Bond as " …the product of indefatigable research in original documents, a determination to present a clear, accurate, and readable narrative of military operations, and a close personal knowledge of the battlefields, which enabled him to elucidate his account with excellent maps. Most important, however, was his motivation: namely, a lifelong affection for the old, long-service, pre-Cardwell army, the spirit of the regiments of which it largely consisted, and the value of its traditions to the nation." A beautifully presented set of this important work, bound for Cora Colgate Stafford - her monogram, surmounted by the countess' coronet, gilt to the tail of the spines, her engraved bookplate to the front pastedowns - one of the "Dollar Princesses" of the "Gilded Age", Cora was the widow of the soap magnate Samuel J. Colgate, on his death in 1897 inheriting a fortune which would be worth around $250 million today, and the following year marrying Henry William George Byng, the 4th Earl of Stafford.

The Episcopal Register of Bishop Godfrey Giffard from September 23rd 1268, to August 15th, 1301, compiled and edited for The Worcestershire Historical Society by John William Bund Willis-Bund (1843 - 1928) an historian and local Worcestershire politician. With a chronological contents to front, appendices and a comprehensive introduction with an index to the introduction and a further index to rear. The Diocese of Worcester forms part of the Province of Canterbury in England. The diocese was founded in around 679 by St Theodore of Canterbury at Worcester to minister to the kingdom of the Hwicce, one of the many Anglo Saxon petty-kingdoms of that time. The original borders of the diocese are believed to be based on those of that ancient kingdom. Godfrey Giffard (c1235- 1302) was Chancellor of the Exchequer of England, Lord Chancellor of England and Bishop of Worcester. Giffard was still Chancellor when the monks of Worcester elected him as Bishop of Worcester about 13 June 1268, on the translation of Bishop Nicholas of Ely to the See of Winchester. Henry III accepted his appointment, and he received the temporalities on 13 June 1268. After some little resistance, Archbishop Boniface of Savoy confirmed his election, but it was not until 23 Septemberthat he was consecrated by the archbishopat Canterburyand he was enthroned in Worcester Cathedral on Christmas Day 1268. He retained the chancellorship until October 1268, and in 1268 received a grant of five hundred marks a year for the support of himself and the clerks of the chancery. Giffard ruled over the See of Worcester for more than thirty-three years, and his activities were almost confined to his own diocese. With previous owner's ink inscription to front free endpaper and a bookseller's label 'E. G. Humphreys, Worcester' to front pastedown. Condition: In a half morocco binding with cloth covered boards. Externally, generally sound but with some wear to extremities and odd slight marks to boards. Front joint starting very slightly. Internally, firmly bound.

Portfolio worn at extremities, lacking ties. Several plates lightly chipped at edges, lightly toned. Very good. Very scarce suite of photogravure plates from Eugene André's expedition on the Caura River in Venezuela, November 1900 to July 1901, printed in Trinidad the next year. The majority of the plates show scenes of village life of the Waiomgomo people, as well as river views, and a group shot of the participants of the expedition. The series begins and ends with portraits of André, taken at the beginning and end of his journey - a stark study in contrast from the robust Edwardian scholar to the emaciated and aged survivor in a straw hat. André, a native of Trinidad, was a naturalist and explorer. An important ethnographic document. This portfolio was issued with a text volume, as well, and was his first publication upon his return from the Guianas region of Venezuela. Rare, with five copies of the portfolio located in OCLC - British Library, British Natural History Museum, New York Botanic Garden Library, Western Reserve, and the University of Oregon.

Spine in six panels with gilt compartments each with similar motifs as covers. Full morocco inner boards, each with matching brown and black morocco and elaborate coat-of arms with three bells and stars in the cetner and with four identical monograms: BHB. One of 325 copies printed on paper. The monogram BHB belongs to Harold Wilmerding Bell (1885-1947), the archaeologist and Sherlock Holmes collector. Two stamps (monogram and arms) are found on three of his books now in the Houghton Library at Harvard. One, a Keats Poems, 1898, is bound by Riviere in green goatskin, with the arms and monogram similarly placed as the is copy on the doublures and the arms on the brown goatskin slipcase. The other two, on earlier books, are in slipcases signed by Riviere with the stamps. This binding is certainly of the quality associated with Rivere and certainly not the work of the Doves Bindery as suggested by one dealer). A fine copy with slight rubbing to joints and very slight inner hinge wear. Housd in marbled slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition]

Stoker's supernatural mystery set in Cruden Bay involves coded writing based on a Francis Bacon cipher. "I found the story admirable. It has not the fearsomeness of 'Dracula' but it is beautifully handled and the girl very admirable indeed... I've done my bit in cryptograms myself but that knocks me out!" (Arthur Conan Doyle). The Mystery of the Sea was originally published in the US in the same year.

        Autographed Letter Describing Dawson City and Its Inhabitants Dated September 1902

      Dawson City - 1902. () Very good. Original signed letter on 4 sheets of letterhead from Occidental Hotel in Skagway, Alaska. Writing on 6 of 8 pages. Two vertical and three horizontal folds. Some light edgewear and wear to folds. Top edge lightly age-toned. A fascinating letter, written in a clear, steady hand, wherein Mrs. Dubell relates her detailed impressions of Dawson City to a friend in New Jersey. Mrs. Dubell and her husband had recently moved to Dawson City, and Mrs. Dubell is clearly impressed and surprised by Dawson's relatively metropolitan feel. She writes: "I see as fine dressed ladies on the street here as you will see in any large city and I think I have seen the finest looking men here as I even saw." She also notes that the Presbyterian Church cost "80,000 to build. And the music is as good as you will hear in any church." Mrs. Dubell then describes her house across the river from Dawson and remarks that "in the evening the city looks fine all lighted up with electric lights." She also details the wonderful vegetables she can grow in her garden and relates a wedding she attended of a gentlemen who moved to Dawson 4 years ago (at the height of the Gold Rush) and who just brought his intended to Dawson from California days ago for the wedding. The Dubells ran a greenhouse service in Dawson which grew produce. All in all, a great letter with detailed observations of a young and bustling Dawson City. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
