About this Item: Tokyo 1936, Hokuseido. Blue cloth, very clean, bright copy, top edge gilt, 158p., 11 b.w. photos, gold stamped titles, 15 x 23 cm. FIRST & ONLY EDITION This superb work was compiled by Hearn's son to commemorate the 26th Buddhistic anniversary of his father's death. It is composed of almost one hundred letters received by Lafcadio Hearn from Chamberlain, the great Japanologist and scholar. * Hearn found Chamberlain one with whom he could talk on equal terms, and speak his mind. There association was of a high order and the intellectual association showed a perfect und- erstanding between them. These letters offer a keen insight of a wide variety of subjects frankly discussed. Some candid topics cover "shalls and wills," the woman question and a host of others. This is an important primary source. * REFERENCES: P.D. & Ione Perkins: LAFCADIO HEARN A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF HIS WRITITINGS, p.105. *. Seller Inventory # 84285302

About this Item: Slough [England], March 23, 1832., 1832. 1 page, 8vo., (7 ¼ x 4 ½ inches) with red wax seal affixing a few strands of Sir Walter Scott's hair, dated 1831 (original horizontal folds, mounted on heavier cardstock). A charming letter from Captain Basil Hall, the British naval officer, traveller, and author best known for his "Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Corea and the Great Loo-Choo Island in the Japan Sea" (1818), which was one of the first descriptions of Korea by a European. Hall is also known for his "Travels in North America in 1827-28" (1829), whose observations sparked an angry response from American readers. In this letter he offers his autograph to a lady he met at a party, along with the proposition of a trade: he offers some of Sir Walter Scott's (1771-1832) hair for that of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792): "It is probable that you possess some of Sir Joshua's hair & I shall be happy to make an exchange with you. At all events I send you a couple of hairs cut from Sir Walter Scott's head, which may possess a value in your eyes & help as wings to support and enhance the value of this autograph." Reynolds was an influential eighteenth-century English painter, and appears to be related in some way to the recipient of this letter: "I have had great satisfaction in meeting with a person so nearly connected with Sir Joshua Reynolds, & only regret that I was not made aware of this circumstance sooner, as there is no person respecting whose private life I feel more anxious to gain some information." Hair collecting was wildly popular in the nineteenth century, both as a sentimental remembrance of a loved one and as a collectible item analogous to an autograph of a famous person. The lock of hair here is dated 1831, the year before Scott's death (and the writing of this letter). Seller Inventory # 72MMS140

About this Item: 1833. No binding. Condition: Good. QUITE UNUSUAL - BOTH BASIL AND MARGARET HALL HANDWRITING ON ONE DOCUMENT 9-1/2 x 7-1/2 inches. Autograph letter signed. Two pages, Dated (on the Rhine 20th May 1833. Two pages, 4to. With postscript on verso by his wife Margaret, also a writer. To his wife's mother, Lady Hunter. Basil Hall's letter reads: "My dear Lady Hunter, I write merely to report of myself and to mention that here we are safe and sound and all happy and merry with our journey. We came here on Sat. Eve. And passed yesterday chiefly with Mrs. Hoover and her family. Mr H. Is in England. In the evening Mr. Schlegel and other intelligent oxalises of both sexes came to Mrs. Homers. This day we go to Coblentz by the Steam Boat and then we propose going on just as before. The weather is delightful still. We have a famous thunderstorm on Sat. Eve. After we got here which has cooled the air and laid the dust. My journal for the young folks goes merrily - I hope it may amuse hem. Perhaps Mgt [Margaret] might add a line to you. Mr. Dollard of St. Paul's Churchyard is to send a Box to meet me at Geneva and by it you may send any odds and ends. Mgt begs get from Joel Lane a book which Eliza left, called The Ladder of Leaving - and send it to Mr. Dollard. Yours Affecftionately, B. Hall" Margaret Hall adds: 'That is to say you may desire Jane to send the book to Mr. Dollard. We at present plan going on either tomorrow or the following day from Coblentz to Mayence also by Steam Boat, and thence to Frankfurt by land, a distance of only about 20 miles- there we shall stay two or three days and I shall send a large sheet which will by that time be filled. There are two routes from Frankfurt to Munich, one to Heidelberg and Carlsruhe and thence by Stuttgard to Munich, but I think we shall prefer the other by Wuryburg, Nuremburg, Donanwerth and Augsburg - either way we shall get there by the end of the week even in our very leisurely mode of travelling. Eliza's message is a kiss, and that she wishes you would come and see us - Fanny Emily has given me a flower to send to you which you must imagine she has sent. Ever affectionately yours, Margaret Hall. 9 o'clock Monday. You can either forward this to Rose if you have a frank or let her know you have heard from us." From [James John] Audubon and His Journals/The European Journals. 1826-1829: "At precisely six I found myself at No. 16 Hope St. I was shown upstairs, and presented to Lady Mary Clark, who knew both General Wolfe and General Montgomery, a most amiable English lady eighty-two years of age. Many other interesting people were present, and I had the pleasure of taking Mrs. Basil Hall to dinner, and was seated next her mother, Lady Hunter, and almost opposite Lady Mary Clark. I did not feel so uncomfortable as usual; all were so kind, affable, and truly well-bred. At nine the ladies left us, and Captain Basil Hall again attacked me about America, and hundreds of questions were put to me by all, which I answered as plainly and briefly as I could." Basil Hall was a British naval officer from Scotland, a traveller, and an author. Following Basil Hall's retirement from the navy in 1823, Hall was married on 1 March 1825 to Margaret Congalton (d. 1876), the youngest daughter of Sir John Hunter, Consul-General in Spain by his spouse Elizabeth Barbara, sister to Sir William Arbuthnot, 1st Baronet. Margaret Hall is the subject of a 1931 book "Aristocratic Journey. Being the outspoken letters of Mrs. Basil Hall, written during a fourteen months' sojourn in America, 1827-1828" Basil Hall commanded many vessels involved in exploration and scientific and diplomatic missions. From the beginning of his naval career he had been encouraged by his father to keep a journal, which later became the source for a series of books and publications describing his travels. Hall toured the major cities of the eastern and southern states, and his narrative includes comments on education, politics and government, the judicial system, slavery, and manu.
