Item Description: Chapman & Hall, London, 1891. One volume bound into 2: xx, 160; [161] - 432 pp (including Index). Tipped in on fly leaf of Vol I, a 12-page booklet titled "An Interesting Dickens Collection", of which only 100 copies were printed on June 9th, 1887. Holograph title page in V. 2 facing an engraved frontispiece portrait of a young Charles Dickens. Color frontispiece. Published with 100+ illustrations by Kitton, et al. Letter facsimiles. This 1/20 limited copy with 5 additional inserted plates & facsimiles. Also, extra-illustrated for presentation, including 130+ additional plates, many of them india proofs, along with steel plate engravings & etchings [16 hand-colored, 3 in sepia tone], some folding. Additionally, inserted on mounts are 7 ALs letters [see below], as well as a signed CDV of Rev. Dr. Wordsworth, Bishop of Lincoln. 8vo. About 20 years after the death of Dickens, the author and his friend & fellow Dickensian, Mr. F. G. Kitton, decided to find and visit the real-life settings for the scenes in Dickens's novels and stories. Following their trip, Chapman & Hall published this limited edition in 20 copies with more than a hundred in-text illustrations showing these venues, with five extra illustrations including two matte collodion portrait photographs of the author and Mr. Kitton. Our copy is additionally extra adorned with 7 authograph letters by George Augustus Sala (2), Douglas Jerrold (3), George Hogarth (4), Dante G. Rossetti (5) (referring to Mr. Swinburne's affairs), Charles Roach Smith (6), Mark Lemon (7), and John Ruskin (8); and also includes an authograph and signed carte de visite by Rev. Dr. Wordsworth (9), bishop of Lincoln. (1) The Guild of Women-Binders was founded by Frank Karslake (who also founded The Hampstead Bindery) in 1898. It operated until 1904 as a loosely-knit federation of women binders from such groups as the Edinburgh Social Union, the Kirkby Lonsdale Handicraft Class, the Chiswick Art Workers' Guild, and Miss Bassett's Leighton Buzzard Handicraft Class for crippled girls, among others. Some of the more outstanding women binders represented by the Guild included Miss Constance Karslake, Miss Edith de Rheims, Florence de Rheims, Miss Helen Schofield, Mrs. Frances Knight, Mrs. Macdonald, Miss Lilian Overton, Miss Gaskell and Miss Edwards. The Guild, together with its counterpart, The Hampstead Bindery, published "The Bookbindings of To-morrow" in 1902, and held both exhibitions and sales of their bindings at Sotheby's. (2) George Augustus Sala was a renown British journalist. In 1851 Charles Dickens accepted his article, "The Key of the Street," for his journal, Household Words. This was the first of many articles that Dickens published over the next few years. In April, 1856, Dickens sent Sala to Russia as the journal's special correspondent. Sala also contributed to the author's next venture, "All the Year Round." (3) Douglas William Jerrold was an English dramatist and writer. He founded and edited for some time, with indifferent success, the Illuminated Magazine, Jerrold's Shilling Magazine, and Douglas Jerrold's Weekly Newspaper; and under his editorship Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper rose from almost nonentity to a circulation of 582,000. The history of his later years is little more than a catalogue of his literary productions, interrupted now and again by brief visits to the Continent or to the country. Douglas Jerrold died at his house, Kilburn Priory, in London on the 8 June 1857 and was buried at West Norwood Cemetery, where Charles Dickens was a pall-bearer. Dickens gave a public reading to raise money for Jerrold's widow. (4) George Hogarth was a Scottish newspaper editor, music critic, and musicologist. He authored several books on opera and Victorian musical life in addition to contributing articles to various publications. From 1846?1866 he worked as a music critic for The Daily News, a paper which was founded by Charles Dickens. He had previously met Dickens in 1834 while they were both working for the Morning.

Works of the Highly Experienced and Famous: GLAUBER, John Rudolph;

Item Description: Printed by Thomas Milbourn for the Author, London, 1689. Leatherbound. Book Condition: Fine. First English Language Edition. 8], 440 [444], [4], 220, 92, [11] p. 37 cm. 7 full-page engraved plates, two in-text woodcut illustrations, and a few decorations. Full panelled leather. Full panelled leather. Rebacked with repaired corners and edges. Inside repairs to hinges, top of title page, last few pages, and rear pastedown. Second last page of index cut off at top. Tears to two plates, opposite pp. 189 and 337 in first part. Ink and pencil notations or marks throughout. Occasional small tears and chips. Some thumbing and staining. Last two pages have worm holes at bottom. Johann Rudolph Glauber (1604-70) was a self-taught scientist responsible for many practical advances in chemistry, the most important being the invention of improved distilling furnaces. A great traveller, he explored Europe widely and in the process discovered a mineral spring, the salts of which still bear his name, Glauber's salts. He also encouraged Germans to make better use of their natural resources in the large work entitled "The Prosperity of Germany." He had other talents as well, having manufactured mirrors, studied wine production, and worked as an apothecary who provided free medical treatment for the poor. Glauber's influence eventually spread throughout Europe, hence this English edition of his works. Nevertheless, he was little appreciated in his own lifetime and died in poverty. Translator Christopher Packe, himself a chemist and physician, worked under the patronage of Robert Boyle, whose name appears on the list of subscribers. Another subscriber is William Penn, presumably the founder of Pennsylvania. Bookseller Inventory # 105177

Item Description: I. Walsh, London, 1755. Folio. Attractively bound in period style in modern quarter brown calf with decorative blind-tooling, marbled boards, titling to spine gilt. 1f. (title), 1f. (table of contents and publisher's catalogue, "Musick Compos'd by M.r Handel"), [1] (blank), 2-61, [62] (blank), 63-92 pp. Engraved.The title includes an excerpt from the spoken prologue to the work by David Garrick (1717-1779). The singers Mr. Beard, Sigra. Passerini, Sigr. Guadagni, Miss Poitier, Master Moore, Miss Young and Master Reinhold are named in printed captions ("Sung by.") within the score.Very slightly browned; occasional minor signs of wear; tear to inner margin of p. 61 along edge of plate not affecting notation. First Edition. BUC p. 958. RISM S3666. As with many London publications of the period, The Fairies was first issued in three separate parts, in March-April 1755 (see Walsh II, 1374-6, recording no complete set of parts). First performed at Drury Lane in London on February 3, 1755. Smith was a pupil of Handel and was employed by him as a copyist. "By 1725 [Smith] was having lessons from Handel; his early copies and arrangements of works by Handel demonstrate that his progress was rapid and that he was being instructed in composition as well as keyboard. Smith and David Garrick [1717-1779] presented two full-length all-sung Shakespearean operas in 1755 and 1756: The Fairies, based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, and The Tempest. Dwarfed by Handel's greatness, Smith's music had little chance for real success. His strongest work retains the style of his mentor, while his attempts at more modern idioms are, with some exceptions, generally less effective. Much of his music is indeed worthy of revival, particularly the opera The Fairies and individual arias, choruses and keyboard selections, but Smith's reputation rests today more on his association with Handel than on his musical accomplishments." Barbara Small in Grove Music Online."It has been suggested that Garrick was responsible for the alterations to Shakespeare';s text, but he firmly denied it and his prologue suggests that Smith himself was the author. The music survives only in printed score [i.e., the present edition], including the overture, the arias, the final chorus and two symphonies, but omitting the recitatives, dances and other pieces. The plot follows Shakespeare';s, but the ?rustics'; are excluded. The characters are Theseus (tenor) and his betrothed Hippolita (silent); Egeus (bass), his daughter Hermia (soprano), her lover Lysander (alto castrato [Guadagni]) and her betrothed Demetrius (tenor; he has no arias), and Helena (soprano), in love with Demetrius; and the king and queen of the fairies, Oberon (baritone) and Titania (soprano), with her servant and Puck (trebles). Garrick';s (spoken) Prologue is a commentary on the audience';s ignorance and prejudice towards English composers." Michael Burden in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 25507

Just a little rubbed, a scatter of light foxing, but overall a very good copy. Folding engraved map. First edition. Decidedly uncommon, just 8 copies on Copac, with only single copy noted at auction. The only published account of the Third Niger Expedition which was intended to "establish trading stations on the Niger's banks" profiting from trade in their immediate locales, but also taking advantage of proximity to Kano, the "most important market city" in West Africa (Howgego). "The third Niger expedition was not accidental. It was a result of the success recorded in the second expedition of 1854, and the recommendations of Samuel Crowther about the voyage that prompted the British Government to set in motion this third expedition that was later to be labelled the 'New Era of the commercial history of West Africa'" (Adeuyan, The Journey of the First Black Bishop: Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther 1806 - 1891, pp.125-6). Crowther was a Yoruba who was captured as a slave during the civil wars, and freed when the Portuguese slaver he was on was taken by the British Navy. Freed in Sierra Leone in 1821, he was educated by the Church Missionary Society, baptized in 1825, becoming a schoolteacher in 1841. He was sent to England and ordained in 1845, returning to Yorubaland in 1846 as a missionary, baptizing his first convert in 1862. "He became bishop of 'Western Equatorial Africa beyond the Queen's Dominions' in 1864, a post he held until 1890" (Howgego). Prize inscription verso of the front free endpaper recording presentation to G.C Spencer by the headmaster of Chatham House, the Rev. Alfred Whitehead, father of the great mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead. Henze,I, p.756; Howgego, IV, B6(B). Bookseller Inventory # 98141

Item Description: Alstone Green Gloucestershire. Between and 1862 mainly between 1820 and 1847, 1800. Apart from one contribution dating from 1800, three from the 1850s and two from the 1860s, all contributions date from between 1820 and 1847. 237pp., 4to, with eight items loosely inserted (including four coloured botanical drawings on card) and three-page partial index of contributors. In contemporary black leather binding, with embossed pattern and gilt border on front board, marbled endpapers, and all edges gilt. In good condition, lightly aged and worn, in rebacked binding, worn at spine, with new label. Although the album has a strong bias towards the circle of Quaker families in the Gloucestershire area of which Lydia Davis was a member (Thomas Pole married into the Barrett family of Cheltenham), a number of prominent individuals within the movement are also present. Notable among the 120 contributors are: the physician and Quaker minister Thomas Pole (1753-1829), who contributes three pages of illustrations; the chocolate manufacturer Joseph Storrs Fry (1767-1835), a religious quotation, 1830; the temperance campaigner Thomas Shillitoe (1754-1836), an original religious rumination beginning 'If Gold would pass current in heaven, and there add to my happiness, old as I am, I would never set down quiet', Tottenham, 1833; the abolitionist Joseph Sturge (1793-1859), a quotation 'On Silent Worship', 1831; the Translator of Tasso Jeremiah Holme Wiffin (1792-1836), an abolitionist poem entitled 'Appeal for the Injured African' (see below); the American Quaker ministers Christopher Healy (1773-1851) of Rhode Island (Isaac Watts's hymn 'We are a garden wall'd around', dated 15 October 1831, and titled 'On the Church of Christ') and John Wilbur (1774-1856) (eleven-lines of apparently original and unpublished verse on Hunt and Woolman, beginning 'But shall I cautiously presume to touch', 'Extracted for his friend Lydia Davis by John Wilbur of Hopkinston in the state of Rhode Island N. America 5th Mo 5th 1832'). As the above examples show, the textual contributions almost entirely consist of devotional verse and prose, either original or extracted from the work of sympathetic authors such as Isaac Watts and Bernard Barton (exceptions include a piece of 'Russian Poetry' titled 'Thunder Storm' contributed by Richard S. Harford, and a passage from Wordsworth's 'Excursion'). J. H. Wiffin's contribution is an undated holograph (signed 'J. H. W.') of his poem 'Appeal for the Injured African' (first published in 'Aurora Borealis, a Literary Annual, edited by Members of the Society of Friends', 1833), consisting of sixty lines in fifteen four-line stanzas, and covering three pages, it begins: 'O Thou to whom the mournful sigh | Of sorrow and despair ascends, | Who hear'st the ravens when they cry, | The babe when at thy feet he bends! -' The third stanza appeals for divine aid: 'By realms dispeopled, tongues struck dumb | With the brute outrages of years, | In Thy remembrance let them come - | The Negro's wrongs, the Negro's tears!' The volume contains fifteen illustrations (four loosely inserted), comprising: three pages of drawings in black ink by Thomas Pole, the first page with a calligraphic design of the letters 'L. D.' [for Lydia Davis], and the other two pages with six small rural scenes, the first an arrangement of four 0.8 x 1 cm ones, and the second an arrangement of two of 4 x 4.5 cm (for other examples of Pole's artistic work, see the 36 plates in E. T. Wedmore's 'Thomas Pole, M.D.' (London: Headley Brothers, 1908); a pencil drawing by Sarah Lowe of 'Eatington Meeting House'; two pheasants in colour, with a background in pencil, by 'S. D[avis]'; a page with three beautiful small coloured illustrations (a parrot, a naval scene and a cottage) by Oade Roberts (1800); an anonymous pencil drawing of a ruined priory; eight coloured botanical drawings, by A. Davis (two, 1820 and 1822), Mary Westcombe, Sarah Savoury and Rachel Savoury, and three anonymous. Other contributors are: E. M. Alexander, Cheltenham, 1835; Jacob Allis ('Writte.
