        The Works of Charles Dickens (Including: Bleak House; A Tale of Two Cities; David Copperfield; Great Expectations; Oliver Twist; A Christmas Carol; David Copperfield; Dombey & Son; The Old Curiosity Shop; Nicholas Nickleby).

      Chapman & Hall 1906-1908, London - Octavo, 40 volumes. Full red morocco bound by Bayntun, with gilt titles and elaborate tooling, blue inlay to the inner and rear panels. This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring. An interesting letter regretting that Dickens did not attend Bowring's lecture and mentioning his "Falstaff house" and "All the Year Round" and joking with him about taking poison from the Natives. Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis. In which Dickens apologizes for not answering his letter earlier but explains that he has no connection to the Punch office and that his amateur company will not be able to visit Newcastle. Numerous plates throughout including mounted illustrations after George Cruikshank, Hablot K. Browne. An exceptional complete set in near fine condition. Charles Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).

      1906 - Paris: F. Jourdan for Ernest Flammarion, 1906. 8vo. Original morocco backed marbled boards, spine lettered, dated at the foot, and decorated in gilt, printed pictorial wrappers bound in, top edge gilt, fore-edges uncut, lower edges trimmed, pictorial lithographic wrapper bound in, marbled endpapers; pp. [xvi, including initial blank and portrait-frontispiece], xxxvii, 486, [2], with folding map and many illustrations (several full-page) maps, charts and tables in the text; light wear to extremities; internally only light browning in places; a good copy. First edition. Financed by an inheritance received in 1893, Charcot's French Antarctic Expedition initially intended to search for Nordenskjà ld, from whose Antarctic expedition there had been no word in the spring of 1903. However, on reaching Buenos Aires and finding that the Swedish expedition had returned safely, Charcot continued to the Palmer Archipelago and the Graham Land Coast. There, in spite of damage sustained by the Français, the expedition succeeded in discovering 620 miles of new coasts and islands, making an accurate map of the Graham Land Archipelago, undertaking numerous scientific observations, and assembling extensive collections of zoological, botanical and geological specimens. The work was issued in two bindings: printed wrappers and morocco-backed boards, with the printed wrappers bound in; the present copy is a very fine example of the latter binding, and the pictorial wrappers are in very fresh condition.

        Zawiadomienie. Dzis w nocy wyrwalismy opryszkom cerskim z Pawiaka .

      - Warsaw, Centralny Komitet Robotniczy Polskiej Partij Socjalisticznnej, 24 April 1906. Illegally printed broadside. 4to, nine lines of text; evenly a little browned, short marginal tear; otherwise fine. This Announcement, published by Polish revolutionaries, tells us that they freed tonight ten political prisoners, who had been sentenced to death, held by the Tsarist army in the infamous Pawiak prison in Warsaw (built from 1829 to 1835), concluding the the triumphant note 'they shall live in freedom'. The daring and life-saving deed had been carried out with stolen uniforms, and forged typewritten documents demanding the prisoners to be handed over. This event was celebrated throughout the Polish underground; however, printed documents of that kind could mean deportation to Siberia for the holder and are of greatest rarity. This item was exhibited at Kontrol, an art event-cum-exhibition organized by Poland Street Underground in London, November, 2009.

        THE MIRROR OF THE SEA [inscribed by Conrad]

      1906. [inscribed by Conrad] New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1906. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in yellow, grey and brown. First (American) Edition, published on the same day as the London one. This was Conrad's first volume of autobiographical non-fiction. This copy is in Cagle's binding "a," with the smaller (17x11mm) anchor-and-rope device on the front cover -- probably the earlier binding state, and certainly the one more-frequently encountered. This is a very good copy (spine darkened, rubbing at extremities and of pictorial pigment). Cagle A11b. Housed in an attractive cloth slipcase with inner chemise.~This is an inscribed presentation copy from Conrad, with the following endpaper inscription: "To Elena Wright | affectionately, from | her friend the Author | 4th Oct. 1906." Eleanor Annie "Elena" Wright (1877-1961) was Jessie Conrad's first cousin -- the daughter of Jessie's mother's sister Sophie -- who took dictation and typed for Conrad during these early years. In fact, THE MIRROR OF THE SEA owes a lot to Elena Wright: as Ford Madox Hueffer (Conrad's co-author of the recent ROMANCE) later recalled, Conrad "wrote" this book by reminiscing out loud (with Elena Wright taking it all down) -- in Hueffer's presence (Hueffer typically takes much credit for reminding Conrad of many events). Three things are noteworthy about this inscription: first, that it is so familiar ("affectionately, from her friend"); second, that at this early stage of Conrad's career (he would not hit it big until CHANCE in 1914), he chose to inscribe with humility, i.e. to write "the Author" rather than his signature; and third, that the date "4th Oct. 1906" was the actual date of publication of both the UK and US editions. (There is also a more recent inscription on the same leaf: "Eve Goodman from J.S. Hall | in memory of Nell"; since "Nell" is often a nickname for Eleanor, these people were quite likely descendants of Elena Wright.) Provenance: small bookplate of Stanley J. Seeger (his sale II, lot 254).

        Gesigt van de Visbrug, de Waag en Vismarkt, te sien naar de Hooglandsche kerk en Stadhuys tooren, tot Lyden. | Vüe du Visbrug, du Pois et Poissonerie, vers l'eglise de Hooglande et la tour de la Maison de Ville a Leide.[Amsterdam], Leonardus Schenk, [ca. 1728/35]. Large engraved wall print on 2 sheets, (together 58 x 97 cm) the sheets overlapping each other slightly, showing the traditional business centre of the city of Leiden. The title, both in Dutch and French, is printed in a banderole at the head, with putti on each side supporting the arms of Leiden and Holland. Leonardus Schenk's name appears as engraver and publisher at the right tip of the banderole. In black passepartout and gilt frame (82 x 121 cm).

      Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 964; Waller, Biogr. woordenb. Noord Ned. graveurs, p. 287. A large engraved wall print in two sheets showing the trading and commercial centre of the city of Leiden, at the convergence of the Oude Rijn and Nieuwe Rijn canals. Unlike most other Dutch towns, Leiden had no central market square, so that the waterways formed the major access routes for merchandise. On the banks of the canals there is a lively market that converges on the bridge central in the print. Market traders and customers come and go. Women from the coastal fishing villages of Katwijk and Noortwijk display fresh fish for sale. Right in the print we see the monumental "Waag", the weigh-house built in 1658 following a plan by the Dutch architect and engraver Pieter Post. The splendid relief, designed by Rombout Verhulst, that crowns the entrance, is reproduced with a sharp eye for detail. In front of the building commercial goods are hoisted up from carts and a number of ships for transport to the weigh-house. Several other ships had moored and now continue to their destination. A boat flying the Dutch flag brings in a prominent party, while a herald standing precariously at the bow trumpets for right of way. We know of several other wall prints by Schenk depicting local situations with almost photographic detail. Thanks to this detail important socio-historical aspects have been passed on to later generations giving these prints an important cultural meaning today. With some faint foxing, otherwise in very good condition.

        Enumeratio Plantarum in Insula Formosa sponte crescentium hucusque rite cognitarum adjectis descriptionibus et figuris specierum pro regione novarum. [AND] Flora montana Formosae, an enumeration of the plants found on Mt. Morrison, the Central Chain, and other mountainous regions of Formosa at altitudes of 3.000-13.000 ft. [AND] Materials for a flora of Formosa, supplementary notes to the Enumeratio Plantarum Formosanarum and Flora Montana Formosae. [Complete].

      Tokyo, The College of Science, Imperial University, 1906-1912. Three volumes in three. Large 8vo (25.5 x 18.7 cm). 1,435 pp. [I(1906): 704; II(1908): 260; III(1911-1912): 471], one coloured folded map, 58 engraved plates, several text illustrations. Later uniform blue paper-covered boards with printed title mounted on the front boards.= Despite the three different titles these works clearly belong together, as they all deal with the botany of modern day Taiwan. The first part discusses the low altitudes (below 3,000 ft). The second, by Hayata alone, is on plants from higher elevations on this mountainous island. This area was little explored, and therefore Hayama added many new species. With 41 plates, this part is the most richly illustrated. The third part, also by Hayata, contains additions and corrections to the first two parts, and includes many new taxa too. A complete set such as this one is rare. About eight plates in the first part have some marginal repairs with Japanese paper, but otherwise in very good condition. Stafleu and Cowan, 5678, 2497, 2500.

        Photographs of the Everard and Musgrave Ranges Expedition, South Australia, June-September 1914

      A highly important record of early European contact with the Yankunytjatjara people. Eight gelatin silver print photographs, each 100 x 127 mm, unmounted; versos with the photographer's pencilled captions and sequence numbers; all of the prints are in fine condition. Although principally an ornithologist, by the early 1900s Adelaide-born Samuel White 'had earned a reputation as Australia's pre-eminent field naturalist ... During the years 1906 until 1922 he completed six major expeditions into Central Australia and a number of shorter trips.' (Jones, Philip.Images of the Interior: Seven Central Australian Photographers. Adelaide :South Australian Museum, 2011, p.30). The expedition to the Everard and Musgrave Ranges in June-September 1914 was undertaken in conjunction with the South Australian Government's geological expedition to the far north-west of South Australia. White was invited to accompany it as naturalist and 'to make observations on Aboriginal life and customs. This was to be one of the last Australian exploring expeditions in the nineteenth-century tradition. The party of six Europeans and two Aboriginal guides set out from the Oodnadatta railhead with sixteen camels on 28 June 1914. They travelled north-west into the unexplored Musgrave and Everard Ranges, making observations and collecting natural history specimens.' (ibid. p.33) The photographs of the Yankunytjatjara people of the Everard Ranges taken by White created much scientific interest, as the only previous contact the Yankunytjatjarahad had with Europeans was during the brief encounter with members of the Elder Exploring Expedition in 1891-92. The prints were sent to renowned anthropologist A.C. Haddon at Cambridge, and White's essay on the Yankunytjatjara, accompanied by four of the photographs, was published in the journal Man in 1921. White also published his own memoir of the expedition, In the far north-west : an expedition to the Musgrave and Everard Ranges (Adelaide, 1916). White's pencilled captions on the verso of each photograph are as follows: 9a. Everard natives in camp 9b. Aborig. who accompanied on exp. thro the Ev. Ranges 10a. Aborig. of E.R. throwing spear 11a. A young Everard man 13a. Middle-aged woman of the Everard. 14a. Young woman with child 14b. Nursing the first child 16a. A Musgrave native home. Native shelter in the Mulga scrub
