Animadversions on A late Factious Book,

Description:
London: Printed and are to be Sold by J. Nutt,, 1701. First edition of this anonymous response (signed L.L.D.J at end) to Charles Davenant's book of the same year, which had criticized the government and leading ecclesiastics. In a highly hostile tone, the author declares that Davenant's book "arraigns the ministry in a most outrageous manner; transgresses all the rules of modesty, abandons truth, and casts his blasphemous aspersions on that which all good men hold most sacred, the church" (p. 6). The author defends the ministry at a tumultuous time (with two elections in 1701, alternating Tory and Whig governments, and the ongoing war), especially its foreign policy, against Davenant's attacks. Octavo (190 x 119 mm). Disbound pamphlet, earlier sew-holes in margin. Initial and final leaves soiled, printer's error affecting text to p. 18. A very good copy. ESTC T102175; Goldsmiths' 3832.

Description:
New York: Farrar, Straus and Co.,, 1951. One is one and all alone and evermore will be so First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Helen, with affection and admiration, Shirley, 1951". This title, Jackson's most autobiographical novel, is rare inscribed. Jackson was a master of horror writing whose personal forays into the occult were the subject of wide speculation. The biographical information that accompanied her debut novel was written by her husband, who noted that Jackson "is an authority on witchcraft and magic, has a remarkable private library of works in English on the subject, and is perhaps the only contemporary writer who is a practicing amateur witch, specializing in small-scale black magic and fortune-telling with a Tarot deck" (quoted by Temple). Hangsaman is a gothic tale of a young woman's descent into madness while studying at a liberal arts college. The shy protagonist retreats into an elaborate fantasy life, but her… Read More

Description:
New York: Creed Taylor, Inc.,, 1973. First pressing, signed cleanly and in full by Jackson in black ballpoint on the back cover. This is a lapidary "with strings" date, that sets Bags against lush backdrops by Grammy Award-winning arranger Don Sebesky, who played trombone with the Maynard Ferguson and Stan Kenton bands. Freddie Hubbard's burnished flugeling adds lustre to the proceedings. The core band here is Miles alumni Herbie Hancock (keyboards), and Ron Carter (bass); Billy Cobham occupies the drum stool. "Recorded over two days in December of 1972 at Rudy Van Gelder's Englewood, New Jersey, home studio, vibraphonist Milt Jackson's Sunflower is the first - and best - of his three albums for Creed Taylor's CTI imprint. (And one of the finest offerings on the label.)... While Sunflower sometimes feels more like a group session rather than a Jackson-led one, that's part of its exquisite beauty" (Tom Jurek at AllMusic website). 12-inch vinyl LP (CTI 6024), new plain white inner sleeve (original… Read More

Description:
London: J.M Dent & Co.; Dodd, Mead, & Co., New York:, 1896. First edition, beautifully illustrated by Herbert Granville Fell (1872-1951), whose work was influenced by the pre-Raphaelite, symbolic, and art nouveau movements. A contemporary review described the volume as"perfection" (The Sketch, p. 3). Joseph Jacobs (1854–1916) was an historian of Jewish culture, a literary scholar, and one of the most popular 19th-century adapters of children's fairy tales. His introduction emphasises the literary and artistic (rather than the theological) importance of the Book of Job. Quarto. Original cream cloth over bevelled boards, spine and front cover lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt. Woodcut frontispiece and numerous illustrations to text, title page printed in black and red, all by Herbert Granville Fell. Decorative printer's device of Turnbull and Spears, Edinburgh, on last page. Gift inscription dated December 1896 on front free endpaper.

Description:
London: Andrew Melrose, Ltd,, 1920. First and only edition of this "impressive" and "remarkable book" (The Bookman), an account of the author's services on the Western Front, this copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper; "Miss G. R. Wells, with compliments from the author and in gratitude especially for the great given in writing this book. Charles E. Jacomb, 13/4/20". A fascinating study of the psychological impact of military service. Jacomb (1888-1961) is probably best remembered, in Australia, for his "extraordinarily negative and derisive assessment" of the country, God's Own Country; An Appreciation of Australia (1914), based on his time working on his family's fruit farm at Mildura (biographical details from the University of Queensland, AustLit). Having spent six years there he returned to London in time to enlist for service in the First World War, joining the 23rd Royal Fusiliers. Wounded on the Somme he was invalided out and spent the remainder of the war on home service.… Read More

Description:
Lyon: manufactured by Didier, Petit et Cie; woven by Michel-Marie Carquillat,, 1844. A woven painting that blurred the lines between industrial production and the arts One of the first paintings woven on a Jacquard loom, using the punch-card system. These famous paintings are extremely rare in their original large format version, as here. The painting shows Henri d'Orléans, Duke of Aumale, and his entourage admiring the famous woven portrait of Jacquard, with the loom and the punched-card attachment towering over the visitors. Created after the painting by C. Bonnefond, drawn and card-punched by A. Manin, and woven by Carquillat in 1844, it demonstrates the same fineness of detail as the portrait itself, a shaded portrait of Jacquard seated at table with a small model of his loom. The portrait had been woven in 1839 in fine silk by a firm in Lyon using a Jacquard punched-card loom. The image took 24,000 cards to produce, and each card had over 1,000 hole positions. "Jacquard, born into a Lyonnese… Read More

Description:
Darjeeling, West Bengal: , 1882. A very fine herbarium with expansive additional samples A superb and uncommon hortus siccus of ferns from West Bengal, compiled and mounted by Phoebe Jaffrey, wife of Andrew Thomas Jaffrey, the founding curator in 1878 of the Lloyd Botanic Gardens in Darjeeling. This copy has been copiously expanded by a later British amateur botanist, with a huge number of samples added both within and without. The samples in Jaffrey's herbarium are captioned as "British Sikkim", a region with one of the most diverse floras in India, and especially rich in ferns. While living in India, Phoebe Jaffrey created botanical albums for sale, usually of large folio size, mounted with excellent specimens of local ferns. She sold the albums singly, and in sets of two or three, those such as this dating from 1882 with her label at the rear. The album provides a fruitful example of the roles taken up by colonial wives in India in the documentation and possession of the natural world. Andrew… Read More

London, Bombay & Calcutta: John Murray; The Times Press; & Thacker, Spink & Co.,, 1910 & 1922; 1876. The last Muslim female ruler in Bhopal First editions, all of which are fairly uncommon institutionally and certainly so on the market. These copies sumptuously presented and although unmarked as such from the Harewood House library of Mary, Princess Royal and Countess of Harewood, only daughter of George V and Queen Mary; she was made a Companion of the Crown of India in 1919. Sultan Jahan, Begum of Bhopal (1858-1930), ruled Bhopal State from 1901 until 1926. During this time, she enacted a series of innovative reformist policies such as the creation of workshops in prisons, the establishment of schools and colleges for Muslim and Hindu women, and improvements to general sanitation in the region. As part of these measures, she founded the Lady Lansdowne Hospital for Women and the Lady Hardinge Infant Home, which housed, fed, and clothed orphan and destitute children, both of which are still active.… Read More

Description:
Calcutta: Thacker, Spink and Co.,, 1916. An uncommon work First edition, first impression, with the stamp of the Y.M.C.A. Indian Students Union and Hotel to the title page. The work, intended as the first in a series, was written "in the style of an advice manual to a newly married couple" and "was deemed so important that it was translated into English under the title Muslim Home" (Lambert-Hurley). The translation aimed to counter imperialist concepts of the supposed subjection of women in Islam. The original text, titled Hadiyat ul-Zaujain (A Guide for the Married Couple) was then printed in the Madras Weekly Newspaper Press in 1917. Although no further parts of the series were issued, the work was highly popular, and a number of extracts were reprinted in Muslim publications in Britain.

Description:
Kharkoff: for the author,, 1809. On law enforcement First edition of the distinguished German economist and philosopher's work on law enforcement. First a professor of philosophy in Halle, Jakob (1759-1827) accepted the Russian government's invitation in 1807 to become a professor of economic science at Kharkoff University after the University of Halle was suppressed. His quick mastery of the Russian language made him a favourite of the minister Speransky, who appointed him as a member of the government's finance commission in 1809 and then as the president of the commission for the revision of criminal law in 1810. He returned to Germany in 1816. In his economic works "he closely followed Adam Smith, whilst at the same time seeking to place in a clearer light the fundamental conceptions of the science" (Palgrave II, p. 471). Two volumes in 1, octavo (199 x 117 mm). Contemporary half calf, flat spine with gilt ornaments, red morocco spine label, marbled boards, yellow edges. Extremities worn, spine… Read More

Description:
Halle: bey dem Verfasser und in Commission der Ruffschen Verlagshandlung,, 1805. Adam Smith meets German cameralism First edition, an important work of what Schumpeter calls "Smithian cameralism" (History of Economic Analysis, p. 501), bringing the principles of the Wealth of Nations firmly into German economic thought, reconciling Smith's free trade with the German cameralist school of the economy as a tool of state interest. Jakob (1759-1827) was professor at the University of Halle from 1789 onwards, initially focusing on Kantian philosophy, moving to political economy with the turn of the 19th century. Jakob's close adherence with Kantianism was characteristic of the first generation of Adam Smith's followers in Germany. The present work is in effect a textbook of political economy. The tripartite division of production-distribution-consumption is introduced in the work, preceding the same division used in the second edition of Say's Traité d'économie politique in 1814.
