This leaf contains about a half dozen interlinear editorial corrections in pencil which possibly may be in Emerson's hand. Thoreau writes: [The comparative wealth of the Church in this country was] "apparent; for in this village we did not see one good house besides. They were all humble cottages; and yet this appeared to me a more imposing structure than any church in Boston. But I am no judge of these things. Reenter … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robert Louis Stevenson
London: Cassell and Company, 1906. Complete in twenty volumes, this edition was part of a limited printing of 1550 copies, of which this is number 176. Published by Casell and Company in association with several of Stevenson's previous publishers, including Chatto and Windus, Heinemann and Longmans Green, this collection of his works varies from his most popular (Treasure Island, Kidnapped, In The South Seas, The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde etc) to more obscure, such as Notes and Essays Chiefly of The Road, Letters from Samoa and Familiar Studies of Men and Books. As such, the collection sees Stevenson's fiction and non-fiction, writing of his own opinions and experiences as much as creating these for his characters. The collection was published at a time before Stevenson's work would be disparaged in favour of Modernist Literature, which would make a departure from the escapism that prevailed in the popular work of the Nineteenth Century. This dismissal of Stevenson's work failed to take into account the author's literary and social criticism, as well as his humanist and anti-imperialist viewpoints (this latter aspect seen here particularly in The Ebb-Tide), which would perhaps have seen him viewed in more favour. The result was relatively far-reaching in that he would be deemed unworthy of mention in the definitive Norton Anthology of English Literature until 2006; a century after this collection was published. A bibliography and introduction is here provided by Edmund Gosse, a prominent literary critic of his time and a aquaintance and contemporary of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

WELLS H.G.
WELLS, H.G. In the Days of the Comet. London: MacMillan, 1906. Octavo, original green cloth gilt. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $17,500.First edition, second issue (as always), first state, presentation copy humorously inscribed by H.G. Wells to Richard Gregory, his close friend and scientific advisor, "To dear old Griggalorums. From H.G."Wells was a devoted member of the Fabian society and a utopian socialist; his novels often explore potential utopias and dystopias of the future, and how they may be brought about. In the present work, "the wondrous change in human personality is brought about by the gases in a comet's tail, through which the Earth is fortunate enough to pass," a concept that has been adopted by numerous utopian societies in the years since this novel's pubication (Clute & Nicholls, 1314). Second issue, as usual (only one copy of the first issue is known: the British Library copy), first state, with integral title page. Without scarce original dust jacket. Currey, 419. Hammond B10. Inscribed to noted British scientist and Wells' lifelong friend Sir Richard Arman Gregory. In Wells' first work of fiction, he dedicated the work to Gregory as his "dearest friend." The two met while students at the Normal School of Science in South Kensington. They jointly authored a textbook, Honours Physiography, in 1891. Reportedly, Gregory was the one person with whom Wells never quarreled. A professor of astronomy, Gregory also possessed expertise in physics, chemistry and other disciplines; he wrote several textbooks and eventually assumed the editorship of the journa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Item #207594 FIRST EDITION. Idah Meacham Strobridge's copy, signed by her in Los Angeles, 1907 on front free endpaper.

Her bindery, Artemesia Bindery, at 231 East Avenue 41 also held her "Little Corner" gallery, and was a popular meeting place for writers, artists and craftsmen. London considered himself close to Strobridge. In a 1902 letter to Lurline Lyons, he wrote: "Oh, by the way, look up Mrs. Idah Meacham Strobridge. Tell her I sent you and she will make you very welcome. She is out in the 'Lummis Colony,' and lives in a famous house, or rather, in a house she has made famous by her own personality (Letters, vol. 3, p. 296). WITH A PAGE FROM A TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY LONDON TIPPED IN on the half-title: a quarto page of a typed letter (lacking earlier portion of letter): "... But I am learning, slowly. The great difficulty is to get the proper co-ordination of the various parts so essential to good photography... Of course I like beautiful things, but as you hint, I am too busy to be able to spend much time upon them ----as a creator or even as a collector ... the aesthetic should simply be ... one of the many things for the raising of the human."

SHAKESPEARE, William.
Venice: S. Rosen, 1906. Duodecimo (164 x 99 mm). Contemporary hand-painted vellum by the Rosen bindery with their stamp, front cover featuring a hand-painted vignette within an onlaid gilt metal border surrounded by a foliate design and further gilt metal onlays, variant hand-painted foliate design to spine and rear cover, string ties, patterned endpapers, top edge gilt and gauffered, others untrimmed. A few minor scuff marks, contents toned and occasionally faintly foxed. A highly attractive, near-fine copy. A striking and elaborately bound copy, fittingly being both a Venetian imprint and a Venetian binding. Painted vellum bindings were popular among Grand Tourists at the start of the 20th century, with the Rosen bindery crafting bindings both for their own publications and the books of other publishers. The present example features two ladies, presumably Portia and Nerissa, discoursing in front of St. Mark's Basilica.

Christina G Rossetti
Hammersmith, London: 1906. Condition: A near fine copy, sumptuous red morocco completely unscathed, leaves are very bright except for faint age-toning to the outer page margins, ex-library copy with minimal evidence thus, with Bancroft Library bookplate inlaid to recto of the title-page, otherwise a beautiful copy, near fine. Limited edition, one of 175 copies, octavo size, 75 pp. Limited edition of 175 paper and 10 vellum copies, unnumbered (this one of the paper copies). Christina G. Rossetti (1830-1894) is known for her melancholy love poems, originally drafted in Italian. Her early verses for her mother, written between the ages of twelve and sixteen, were printed privately at her grandfather Gaetano Polidori's press, and are here beautifully reprinted from Polidori's 1847 edition of Verses. Lucien Pissarro and his wife Esther founded the Eragny press in 1894, inspired by the arts and crafts movement and the work of William Morris of the Kelmscott Press. "Lucien Pissarro brought foriegn and unfamiliar sensibilities to his books. The distinctive use of color wood engavings which explore the Impressionist sensation endow Eragny books with a vital character unlike any other revivalist private press" (A History of the Eragny Press 1894-1914, p. 12)."

BINDINGS - KIEFFER). MARGUERITTE, PAUL
Paris: A. Romagnol, 1906. ONE OF 20 LARGE PAPER COPIES on Japon, from a total edition of 350 (this copy unnumbered). The is a unique and especially sumptuous copy of a notable bibliophile's edition, with more than a score of original watercolors and an oceanic binding appropriate for the seaside setting. One of the original 10 members of the Académie Goncourt, Algerian-born French novelist Paul Margueritte (1860-1918) produced novels both independently and in collaboration with his brother Victor. According to Britannica, "Margueritte had begun as a realistic novelist, but he was one of the five writers who signed a manifesto against Zola's 'La Terre,' and he made his reputation by delicate, sober studies of the by-ways of sentiment." The sentimental journey in "À la Mer" takes us to a coastal resort, where the teenage Albert had fallen unhappily in love with the beautiful wife of his host. A particularly lovely feature of our copy is the presence of the vivid original watercolors, which outshine their engraved versions as the sun does a torch. Painter and illustrator Henri Achille Zo (1873-1933) was the son of Basque painter Achilles Zo, but was more influenced by his teacher, the Academic painter Léon Bonnat. Zo won the Prix National in 1905 and was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1910. The presence of his original watercolors and the superb binding by Kieffer indicate that this copy was owned by a collector of distinction. René Kieffer (1875-1964) worked at the Chambolle-Duru bindery for 10 years, mostly as a gilder, before establishing his own studio in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moskva: Condition: Wrappers rather faded and toned along extremities, general wear from handling, small dampstain to upper cover, else About Very Good overall. Autobiographical essay on the author's spiritual evolution penned shortly after Tolstoy turned to Christian anarchism in his late-middle age. Inspired by his reading of Schopenhauer's "The World as Will and Representation," the author describes emerging from a midlife crisis and a break from his literary past. Tolstoy was raised in the Greek Orthodox Church, though by his teenage years was no longer practicing his childhood faith. Instead, the author writes early on in this essay, "I endeavoured to reach perfection in intellectual attainments" (as quoted from Thomas Sharper Knowlson's Leo Tolstoy: A Biographical and Critical Study (1904), p. 42). By late middle age the prospect of reaching literary and intellectual perfection no longer appealed to Tolstoy, who instead turned towards spiritual introspection. As he describes it, his melancholia immediately lessened when he said "God is life," though the author would not write of his Christian beliefs until the publication of What I Believe (also known as My Religion) in 1884. The influence of Tolstoy's religious works have been far-reaching, especially in their bid for nonviolent resistance, the most notable reader and practitioner arguably being Mahatma Gandhi, who wrote to Tolstoy after reading his Letter to a Hindu (1908). The present work would eventually serve as an introduction to a series of three works on religion which Tolstoy himself considered to be his best … [Click Below for Full Description]

1906. Offered is a fairly nice Book titled PETER PAN IN KENSINGTON GARDENS by J.M.

Published Dec. 1906 by Charles Scribner's Sons New York. Overall the Book I would consider very good condition. Some light cover wear as shown in the photos. Just a few pages where the wax paper may have a small tear. Most notable and which is probably pretty common is some interior spine wear on the inside back cover (last page) which I've shown.
