A highly attractive copy of Blake's poetry, in a presentation binding, with a morocco presentation slip lettered in gilt on the front pastedown reading "Margaret Sandford on her wedding day Sept. 22. 1926. From C.R.L.F." The text is the first Sampson edition of Blake's works, taken from the original manuscripts. "Sampson's other great scholarly contribution was the restoration of the text of William Blake's lyrics, long overlaid and 'improved' by editors. In the Poetical Works (1905) he established the definitive text, with much critical and bibliographical apparatus" (ODNB).

WIT, Anne Augusta Henriette de.
The Hague and London , Van Stockum and Luzac & Co., 1900. 8vo. Original green gilt-stamped pictorial cloth; pp. [viii], 266; frontispiece and plates after photographs; upper hinge with one little repair, browning to endpapers, inscription to front fly-leaf; otherwise very good. A very rare richly-illustrated account of Java by the anglophone Dutch writer Augusta de Wit (1864-1939), who was born in Sumatra, and educated in both Holland and England. The present work is based upon a series of articles which de Wit wrote in English for the Singapore Straits Times, which were collected under the title Facts and Fancies about Java, and published in Singapore by the Straits Times Press in 1898. This revised second edition, published in The Hague and London, appeared in 1900 (interestingly, no copy of the first edition is recorded in UK libraries by COPAC, so presumably the print-run was small), and was followed by two subsequent editions (1905 and 1912, equally rare). As a contemporary reviewer wrote in The Times, 'these sketches of life, manners, and nature in the Eastern colony of Holland are drawn with a vivid and sympathetic pen and are well worth preserving in a less ephemeral form than that in which they originally appeared' (28 April 1898, p. 7). COPC does not list a first edition, and only two copies of this, in the Royal Asiatic Society and the British Library.

Archer M. Huntington M.A.
New York, NY: Edward Bierstadt, 1905. Facsimile. [8719] Limited Edition to 300, Boxed. Good. 270 Gelder, London quality paper with deckle edges. All book ties are present but delicate. Boards are leather. Storage box showing discoloration, corner bumps and splits; remainder mark. Ex-libris. The manuscript Under or Registrum of the library in Seville, named in honor of its founder, Ferdinand Columbus, has long excited the interest of bibliographers. Its author did not live to complete his monument of patient industry, which, with its minute cheirography, innumerable abbreviations and frequent detailed accounts of cost, place and date of purchase of the volumes, is, in fact, one of the precious treasures of the Columbine. Not a few books described can no longer, it is true, be found upon the shelves, but the collection is still that of the son of the discoverer and contains many of his volumes annotated by his own hand.

William Morris
London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1905. In four volumes complete. William Morris (1834 - 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and libertarian socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. He founded a design firm in partnership with the artist Edward Burne-Jones, and the poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti which profoundly influenced the decoration of churches and houses into the early 20th century. As an author, illustrator and medievalist, he helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, and was a direct influence on postwar authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also a major contributor to reviving traditional textile arts and methods of production, and one of the founders of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, now a statutory element in the preservation of historic buildings in the UK. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include 'The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems','The Earthly Paradise', 'A Dream of John Ball', the utopian 'News from Nowhere', and the fantasy romance 'The Well at the World's End'. Morris devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. Kelmscott was devoted to the publishing of limited-edition, illuminated-style print books. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the 'Works of Geoffrey Chaucer' is considered a masterpiece of book design. Handsomely bound in a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards.

SLOCUM, Joshua.
New York: The Century Co., 1905. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and decoration to spine and upper board in silver and green, untrimmed. An excellent copy. Half-tone frontispiece and numerous illustrations, some full-page. Third printing (first published 1900) of this superb narrative of the first single-handed circumnavigation of the globe. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Clifford W. Ashley Esq., Joshua Slocum, onboard the Spray, Padanaram Sept. 15th 1906". An outstanding association copy: Clifford W. Ashley (1881-1947) was an American marine artist - he studied under Howard Pyle - and sailor, author of The Yankee Whaler (1926), The Whaleships of New Bedford (1929) and the celebrated The Ashley Book of Knots (1944). Padanaram, Massachusetts, is home to the New Bedford Yacht Club (established 1877). Toy describes Slocum's book glowingly as "the classic account of a small boat voyage, which has been compared favourably to Thoreau's Walden. Slocum perceived his world in a poetic manner and described his vision of reality with grace. After rebuilding Spray, an ancient wreck of a boat given him by a fellow sea captain, Slocum sailed from Boston westward around the world via the Straits of Magellan and the Cape of Good Hope on an eventful voyage which lasted from 1895 to 1898". This is a particularly attractive copy, the binding sharp-cornered and bright, and with a very appealing provenance. Morris & Howland, p. 126 *; Toy 462. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

London: George Newnes, Ltd., 1905. [Detective mysteries] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.[8]; 403; [1]; [4] publisher's advertisements. Publisher's blue cloth, simply titled in gilt to spine and upper. Illustrated with a frontispiece and fifteen further plates by Paget. Neat ownership to title page, faint trace of erased pencil annotation to same and to half title, some neat pencil notes to the blank space at the bottom of the final page of text and on the following blank. Some toning to endpapers and to top edge. Cloth very lightly rubbed to corners and joints, spine ends a little pushed. Overall an excellent, fresh example. Fine. The Great Detective returns after the infamous events at the Reichenbach Falls, in a collection of thirteen stories, among them some of the most interesting in the whole series - 'The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton' is a good example (which Doyle first called 'The Adventure of the Worst Man in London'). Four of the stories ('The Empty House', 'The Dancing Men', 'The Priory School' and 'The Second Stain'), were listed by Doyle in 1927 as being among his favourite Holmes episodes.

This fascicle, the only published, is devoted to the Gour-Emire ("Tomb of the King") mosque in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, which to this day remains unparalleled in scale and significance. The delicacy and clarity of the chromolithographs, based on paintings made on site by the three artists, make it one of the most exquisitely printed and desirable Russian books of the Silver Age and an important work on Islamic architecture.

FREUD, Sigmund.
Leipzig and Wien: Franz Deuticke, 1905. Octavo. Original grey wrappers printed in black, neatly rebacked. Ownership inscription to front wrapper, spine skilfully renewed preserving part of the original lettering, wrappers chipped and frayed at extremities, still a very good, uncut copy. First edition, first impression. In Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious, Freud distinguishes between jokes, the comic, and humour, arguing that the formation of jokes – like dreams – can be traced to the unconscious. Divided into three parts, the investigation psychoanalyses the technique of jokes, the motives behind them, and the relationship between jokes and dreams. "Jokes held a deep, personal significance for Freud Freud often identified with joke characters, jokes provided associations to his own dreams, and several important psychoanalytic discoveries may first have been suggested to Freud by jokes" (Oring, p. 3). Grinstein 256; Norman F54. See Elliott Oring, The Jokes of Sigmund Freud: A Study in Humor and Jewish Identity (2007). [Attributes: First Edition]

William Morris
London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1905. In four volumes complete. William Morris (1834 - 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and libertarian socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. He founded a design firm in partnership with the artist Edward Burne-Jones, and the poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti which profoundly influenced the decoration of churches and houses into the early 20th century. As an author, illustrator and medievalist, he helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, and was a direct influence on postwar authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also a major contributor to reviving traditional textile arts and methods of production, and one of the founders of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, now a statutory element in the preservation of historic buildings in the UK. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include 'The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems','The Earthly Paradise', 'A Dream of John Ball', the utopian 'News from Nowhere', and the fantasy romance 'The Well at the World's End'. Morris devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. Kelmscott was devoted to the publishing of limited-edition, illuminated-style print books. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the 'Works of Geoffrey Chaucer' is considered a masterpiece of book design. Handsomely bound in a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards.

Shchegolev, Pavel Eliseevich (1877-1931)
[St. Petersburg], 1905. Loose folded leaves of typescript to rectos only, with pages measuring 35.5 × 22 cm. Pagination in pencil, occasional corrections as well as longer foreign passages added in ink. one section incomplete; light toning and dust soil; overall very good. This collection of almost entirely unpublished and (as per our research) unknown typescript materials is devoted to the history of secret proto-revolutionary political and literary organizations in early nineteenth-century Russia. The manuscript consists of nine separate chapters, each based on extensive original research and of documentary character. Among the groups described are: "Obshchestvo literaturnykh prenii" and the secret societies of Sungurov (Moscow), Petrashevsky (St. Petersburg), Zavalishin (Moscow), the brothers Kritskii (Moscow) and others. According to our research, only one of the chapters appeared in print, under Pavel Shchegolev's name ("Obshchestvo literaturnykh prenii" in Byloe, 1907, no. 5, pp. 149-151). We thus also attribute the remaining essays to Shchegolev, though it is unclear whether they were meant to be published separately or part of a book project. Byloe was the first legally published journal devoted to the history of the Russian revolutionary liberation movement, and it was co-edited by Shchegolev and the historian Vasiliy Bogucharskii. Despite being legal, Byloe was frequently targeted by the censors and Schegolev was eventually sentenced to three years in prison for various "anti-government" publications. Schegolev (1877-1931) was a literary historian working on Alex … [Click Below for Full Description]

Traveling from Singapore to the Pertang River and Kenawan, he collected several seladang which he regarded with respect: 'I have indeed seen a big seladang in his first rush snap a creeper as thick as a strong man's wrist - a creeper with which twenty men could easily play tug-of-war.' Near the Pahang River he successfully stalked and bagged several elephants."
