This edition also includes "all the illustrations inserted by Ruskin in his books, and all the drawings by him which have hitherto been published [many printed from the original plates]. These are an essential portion of his work" (Preface to This Edition). The last volume contains a bibliography, a catalogue of the manuscripts, and a full index to Ruskin’s works.John Ruskin (1819-1900), "English writer, critic, and artist who championed the Gothic Revival movement in architecture and the decorative arts and had a strong influence upon public taste in art in Victorian England" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature). His major works include Modern Painters (1843-1860), The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849), The Stones of Venice (1851-1853), Lectures on Architecture and Painting (1854), The Political Economy of Art (1857), Unto This Last (1862), Essays on Political Economy (1862-1863, later Munera Pulveris, 1872), Sesame and Lilies (1865), and Fors Clavigera: Letters to the Workmen and Labourers of Great Britain (1871-1884). His story The King of the Golden River (1851) was one of the earliest English fantasies for children.Sir Ernest Ridley Debenham, 1st Baronet (26 May 1865-25 December 1952), was a British businessman. He was responsible for the considerable expansion of the family's retail and wholesale drapery firm between 1892 and 1927. Educated at Marlborough College and Trinity College, Cambridge, he joined the successful business in Wigmore Street, London, which had been run by his grandfather and father. His restructuring activities led to the splitting of the manufacturing from the retail side of the business, under the name Debenham & Freebody (Freebody was the maiden name of his grandmother). He effected a merger with Marshall & Snelgrove as well as a takeover of Harvey Nichols. He was noted for his paternalistic attitude towards his staff, providing medical and educational support. He was also a pioneer in the dairy industry. On his retirement he sold most of his shares in the firm for £1.8M, so severing his family's connections with the retail chain that still bears his name. He was created a Baronet, of Bladen in the County of Dorset, in 1931 (Wikipedia).

      Ogilvie 1903-1904, Chicago - Chromo-lithograph; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 42 pages; There are 42pp and 24 plates full color full page plates two of which are pasted face down inside the covers with only blank backs showing as issued. The story line is printed on the backs of the plates. Hard paper wraps with red cloth spine. Red dye from spine has migrated into the edge of the binding margin. Does not infringe upon either text or illustrations. Size 8.25 x 6.5". Bienvenue & Schmidt suggest that this was produced as a give-away for audience members at the 125th performance of the theatrical version at the Majestic Theatre in 1903. Bienvenue & Schmidt p.146. Both Hanf and Bienvenue remain silent on why the two plates were pasted to the covers face down. ".First and only printing of rare pamphlet printed on original color plates for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. When the George M. Hill Co. , the original publisher of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) , went bankrupt in early 1902, George W. Ogilvie purchased the firm's stock that included unused color plates for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Baum and Denslow sued to have the printing plates to all of their books returned to them as they were negotiating with The Bobbs-Merrill Co. Of Indianapolis to reissue their joint publications. They had every right to as they had paid to have them made. Pictures from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was a shameless attempt to cash in on the recent smash hit musical extravaganza The Wizard of Oz. The color lithographed covers were based on publicity photographs of Fred Stone and Dave Montgomery as the Scarecrow and the Tin Man in the play. Because Ogilvie did not possess the book's actual printing plates, he merely commissioned a new story from hack writer Russell and printed it on the versos of Denslow's original color plates. This largely incomprehensible "Story telling the Adventures of the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Little Girl" bears almost no resemblance to Baum's American fairy tale. It mentions neither the name "Dorothy" or the word "Oz." Unfortunately, two of the plates (the pictorial title page and the picture of Glinda the Good) were used as endpapers and pasted to the backs of the wrappers. Although Denslow's name appears on both the cover and title page of this pamphlet, he does not seem to have approved of or been personally involved in any way with its production." An interesting and scarce ephemeral production in the Wizard of Oz pantheon. Collates complete. Hanff and Greene note that the cover pictures are not by Denslow and the spine has appeared in various colors. There was apparently only one printing of the entire book. ; 0 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Call of the Wild

      Macmillan Company, New York 1903 - First edition. Publisher's promotional pamphlet laid in. Small leather bookplate of Neva and Guy Littell on the front pastedown. A little rubbing to the painted "snow" on the spine and front board else a bright, just about fine copy, lacking the dustwrapper. Laid into this copy is a Typed Letter Signed from Rockwell Kent on his Ausable Forks stationery, to Guy Littell, head of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, dated 25 March 1929, which reads in full: "Dear Mr. Littell: Even before any consideration of the book that you have suggested to me to illustrate, let me express my appreciation of the indulgence you show in considering the continuance of any relations with so rank a procrastinator. I am going to try to have learned one lesson from this experience and make no plans ahead. In evidence of this let me assure you that I am sending Mr. Kittredge, by this same mail, a big package of drawings. I have not read the 'Call of the Wild,' but will do so. Faithfully yours, Rockwell Kent." We infer from this that Littell suggested that Kent illustrate *The Call of the Wild*, a commission Kent ultimately did not accept. One of the two great novels, along with *White Fang*, for which the author seems destined to be remembered. His empathy for animals, combined with his appreciation of the Darwinian lessons of life, overcome London's occasionally simplistic political agenda, resulting in a classic tale for both children and adults.

The 1905 and 1906 catalogues list theprinting numbers only as "a few". This copy is bound in 3/4 brown levant morocco, marbled paper sides and matching endpapers. The spine is in six compartments with raised bands, and each compartment but the title is exquisitely tooled in a gilt floral motif with colored flower petals. The binding is believed to be by Danish binder Lorenz Schwartz. The colophon identifies the illuminator as Grace Fournier, the daughter of Alexis Fournier. Fournier and his family moved to East Aurora to work for Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters in 1903, the same year as the publication of this title. There are two beautifully illuminated initials in the text, one of them in purple, pink and green with gilt initial, the other in red and green with gilt initial. The colophon is illumined in shades of blue, green and purple, and signed by Grace Fournier. There is a lengthy dedicatory inscription beautifully calligraphed in an arts and crafts style; also by Fournier?? In remarkably fine condition with only a trace of wear to one corner, and the boards yawning a bit. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

DUJARDIN, de quatorze planches hors-texte dont deux en couleurs comprises dans la pagination et de plus de cent trente dessins dans le texte. La publication de cet ouvrage est quasi-miraculeuse comme l'explique le petit texte in fine : "Ce livre commencé à composer le cinquième jour de janvier 1894 et terminé le 9 février allait être mis sous les Presses quand un incendie détruisit l'imprimerie tout entière. La composition, une partie du manuscrit, des dessins et des planches furent la proie des flammes. Reconstitué, puis repris après six ans il fut composé de nouveau et parachevé d'imprimer dans l'endroit même où il avait été détruit, le 5 mai 1901. Transporté dans les Ateliers de Michel Engel ce malheureux ouvrage devint encore la proix des flammes le 20 novembre de la même année. Reconstitué pour la troisième fois, il a été enfin parachevé chez A. Eyméoud le 15 janvier 1903." BEL EXEMPLAIRE dans son beau cartonnage, très frais. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        The Church of England" [St. Paul's Cathedral].

      [1903] 1903 - Original platinum print, mounted and framed behind glass. Some very minor oxidization to the edges of the print, a little conservation to one edge but a superb example. A vintage print in exceptionally large format, signed on the mount by the photographer, of St. Paul's Cathedral taken from the south bank of the Thames. Benington was part of the Pictorialist school and best known for his portraiture. His friend and associate Alvin Langdon Coburn made very similar images of London a few years after Benington and that later work must have been influenced by its forerunners. A rare and highly impressive photograph. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

A presentation copy, inscribed by Georgina Schuyler, the great-granddaughter of General Schuyler: "Richard Watson Gilder, with grateful and cordial regards of his, and of Helena's, old-time friend, Georgina Schuyler, New York, Thanksgiving Day, 1903," on the front endpaper; with Gilder's annotations on five pages ---- The recipient, Richard Watson Gilder, was the longtime editor of Scribner's Monthly and Century Magazine, which had published Schuyler's close friend Emma Lazarus's poetry. A poem written by Emma in 1883 had been largely forgotten until Georgina rescued it from oblivion. She called on Gilder, Emma's editor and friend, to help her immortalize "The New Colossus" by engraving it upon a bronze plaque to be placed in the pedestal of the Statue. It took two years of red tape, but in the end, because of the persistence of Schuyler and Gilder, the plaque found its place within the pedestal of the statue that Emma's sonnet had redefined.
