        DIARIO MÉTRICO EN APLAUSO DE LA INMACULADA CONCEPCIÓN DE MARÍA SANTÍSIMA, Distribuido para todo el año.

      - 21 hh.+1 blanca+480 pp. Ejemplar muy limpio y con el papel muy fresco, si exceptuamos una mancha en el pie de la portada y primera hoja de poca importancia. Buena encuadernación en pasta española, de época, con la lomera cuajada inter-nervios. 20,7x15,3. Exlibris manuscrito de anterior poseedor en portada. En la Emprenta de Pascoal de Silva. Lisboa Occidental, MDCCXVII. Hay un soneto para cada dia del año, con un comentario lleno de citas de padres y doctores, aunque el autor declara que «la erudición de tan sagrados asuntos es totalmente ajena de una seglar profesión, por lo que excusa el atrevimiento con «el conforme afecto de mi voluntad, que con invariable solicitud, casi en continua tarea de muchos años, prorrumpió en la métrica consonancia de estos sonetos. Hay muy pocas referencias de este desconocido poeta conceptista de origen portugués. Sabemos que el gran poeta colombiano Rafael Pombo, fallecido en 1912, publicó algunos poemas de Soares junto con los suyos propios en un libro que llevaba por título "Revólver místico".En todo caso parece que de José Soares de Silva no existen más pistas, o al menos nosotros no las encontramos, en la historia literaria, aunque sí sospechamos que bien pudiera ser uno de los fundadores de la portuguesa Academia Real da Historia en 1720, pues aparece citado por Menéndez Pelayo en la Historia de los Heterodoxos Españoles.El ejemplar es calificado de rarísimo por Antonio Gómez Restrepo en su libro de "Crítica Literaria" publicado por Villegas editores.Palau, ref. 315373, cita una venta de Batlle en 1928.

        Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

      1912. The 1912 Rackham Peter Pan[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. BARRIE, J.M. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. From The Little White Bird by J.M. Barrie. A New Edition. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: n.d. [1912]. First trade edition, later issue, of the 1912 new edition (second Rackham edition) with a new color frontispiece and an additional seven full-page black and white plates. Large quarto (10 9/16 x 8 1/4 inches; 269 x 210 mm.). [viii], 125, [1] pp. Fifty tipped-in color plates mounted onto green card with descriptive tissue guards, seven full-page black and white plates and twelve black and white drawings in the text. Publisher's original smooth green cloth pictorially stamped on front cover and spine, plain green endpapers. Gilt on spine very dull, lower corner of front board a little creased. Ink inscription dated Christmas 1921 on front free end-paper. A good copy.Rackham first illustrated Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens in 1906 with just fifty mounted color plates.J.M. Barrie?s novel The Little White Bird (1902) ?contains the first sketches for Peter Pan. The narrator is ?a gentle, whimsical, lonely old bachelor?, an author by profession, whose ambition is to have a son. He meets a penniless young couple whose own son David becomes a substitute in his affections. He explains to David that ?all children in our part of London were once birds in the Kensington Gardens; and that the reason there are bars on nursery windows and a tall fender by the fire is because very little people sometimes forget that they no longer have wings, and try to fly away through the window or up the chimney.? The central chapters of the book tell the story of one such child, Peter Pan, who ?escaped from being a human when he was seven days old?and flew back to the Kensington Gardens??The Peter Pan chapters of The Little White Bird were re-issued in 1906 as Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, with colour plates by Arthur Rackham; this was the book which first made Rackham?s work famous. It should not be confused with Peter and Wendy (1911), Barrie?s novelization of the play Peter Pan? (The Oxford Companion to Children?s Literature).Latimore and Haskell, p. 40. Riall, p. 114.

        åŒ—斎漫画 [Hokusai Manga] [Hokusai Manga]

      Kyoto.: Yamada Naosaburo.. [Reprint].. 明治45. [1912].. Complete 15 volume set. Profuse woodblock illustrations by Hokusai throughout on folded leaves. Japanese 4 hole stab binding, string ties on one volume loosening but still sound, lower and occasional upper edges of covers little damp stained, though staining is only really visible on the pastedowns and has not affected the leaves of the volumes themselves. The attractive black, grey and pale pink images of a huge range of aspects of life are clean. Original case faded and worn, insect damage to paper lining on the inside of the case, a little damage to the title label on the upper flap. A good set of a classic work. The thirteen volumes which make up this classic work are a collection of sketches covering a wide variety of subjects including everyday life in Edo Japan, supernatural beings, landscapes and a range of natural history subjects. The sketches are not connected with each other but are a selection of thousands of images by Hokusai, although there is now considerable doubt by art historians that the sketches in the final volume are Hokusai's own work. "It is probably true to say that Hokusai's reputation in the West was made by this endlessly inventive series of picture-books, thirteen volumes of which were published during his lifetime." (Jack Hillier and Lawrence Smith - Japanese Prints 300 Years of Albums and Books). A good complete set of this classic work. .

        Gas From a Burner.

      [Trieste: Privately printed], [1912]. Broadside, 588 x 230 mm. White wove paper printed in black. Three horizontal creases where folded with some associated professional conservation to the verso. An excellent copy. First edition, sole printing, one of an unknown number of copies. Joyce noted on Lord Esher's copy: "This pasquinade was written in the railway station waiting room at Flushing, Holland on the way to Trieste from Dublin after the malicious burning of the 1st edition of Dubliners (1000 copies less one in my possession) by the printer Messrs John Falconer, Upper Street Dublin in July 1912". The printed byline at the foot of this broadside repeats Flushing which has sometimes erroneously been taken to mean the place of publication. Stanislaus Joyce was clear, however, that the printing was done in Trieste.

        The Ghost Ship and Other Stories

      London T. Fisher Unwin 1912. 8vo. 270pp. Publisher's blue cloth titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board, a fine copy, bright and gleaming and very sharp. In a very good example of the elusive dustwrapper, with a glaring problem, the front inner flap is detached and only half of it remains. The book shows beautifully until you commit the inadvisable sin of opening it and realise the front dustwrapper flap has been cleanly excised and is detached along both edges. Tragic. Otherwise (not entirely the correct word in this context) the wrapper is slightly toned and has the odd very minor and marginal chip of loss. I blame Vincent Starrett, for it is his copy, bearing his distinctive red pirate bookplate, and a gift inscription to the front flyleaf: "For Dave in The Fellowship of Ghosts - Vincent." which might just go a little way towards making up for that front flap disaster, some light restoration work is clearly needed. Internally clean. A nice association of a posthumous work from one of the more tragic figures in the pantheon of British supernatural writing.
