Description:
London: Harrap,, 1986. First edition, first impression, presented by and with a loosely inserted manuscript letter from Karl Lagerfeld (1933-2019) to his goddaughter Virginia, the wife of the novelist Paul Gallico. Lagerfeld's undated letter reads: "Dear Virginia, Thank you for the nice letter. Your typing is OK. Easy to read. I hope you will like this book. It's the same kind we like (in a way). Hope to see you in Jarle[?] Centre during the end of the year. I did a set and costumes for the ballets. Let's wait to see how that will work. Je vous embrane after heureusement. Love Karl". The letter is headed with an engraving of the Grand Champ at Penhoët, Lagerfeld's country home. Lagerfeld's interest in spirituality and the occult was often cited as an influence on his fashion. Peter Underwood's study explores Queen Victoria's long-standing interest in the spiritual world. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With dust jacket. With four half-tone plates. Minimal bumping and rubbing,… Read More

Description:
Vienna: Wilhelm Braumüller,, 1861. One of the first nature-printed books on Australia First edition of this comparative lecture outlining the similarities between the living flora of Australia and Eocene-era fossil plants from Europe, delivered by a pioneer of paleobotany. It is notable for the many delicately rendered illustrations of fossilized leaves, which were printed for Unger by Alois Auer, the celebrated innovator of nature printing. The Austrian botanist Franz Unger (1800-1870) practised medicine in Stockerau and Kitzbühel before becoming professor of botany and zoology and director of the botanic garden in Graz (1835-49) and then professor of plant anatomy and physiology at the University of Vienna (1850-69). An important figure in pre-Darwinian theories of evolution, Unger "used the methods of 'Humboldtian science' to reveal large-scale numerical relationships between environmental variables and species distributions over space or, in his paleobotanical work, over geological time.… Read More

Description:
[Leipzig: Johann Gottl. Immanuel Breitkopf] for Carl Hermann Hemmerde, in Halle,, 1754. A fine example of a Breitkopf publication by an important 18th-century German woman philosopher First edition of a beautifully produced work of verse, printed by the celebrated German typographer Johann Gottlob Immanuel Breitkopf. "The only significant German woman writer of 'anacreontic poetry'", Johanna Charlotte Unzer (1724/25-1782) published two early books of verse: the present, a set of contemplative poems which "include illuminating autobiographical references and reflect Unzer's interest in philosophical issues and methods", and the lighter Scherzgedichten (joke or witty poetry) of 1751 (Dawson in Wilson, Schlueter, & Schlueter, unpaginated). "As poet laureate of the University of Helmstedt, she was one of the few female thinkers allowed to speak publically. Her Grundriss einer Weltweisheit für das Frauenzimmer (1751) is a survey of philosophy for female readers. She described Leibniz-Wolffian tenets,… Read More

With a note in volume I, "Bought at Lord Brabourne's Sale, 28 June 1893"; the elaborately named Edward Hugessen Knatchbull-Hugessen, first Baron Brabourne of Brabourne was a well-known bibliophile and it is surely his purchase note in volume I that shows that he acquired the set from the fashionable London bookseller Bain in 1884 for seven guineas. Brabourne had a particular interest in English topography, and the marginal notes that pepper each volume are undoubtedly his. Attractive armorial bookplate in vol. I of John and Rosemary Pinches, writers on heraldry. a penciled note in volume III initialled by Rosemary Pinches, notes purchase at the Iveagh Bequest sale in the 1980s.

Description:
London: Henry S. King & Co., , 1873. First edition of Upton's account of the bloodlines of British thoroughbreds. He was an early expert on the subject and enlisted the help of "an Arabian gentleman of a Nejdean family" (Preface), who confirmed this book's accuracy. Upton intended the work to "point out errors that have been committed in the breeding of our horse" (ibid). A captain in the 9th Lancers, Roger Dawson Upton (d. 1881), travelled to Arabia shortly after publishing this work in order to obtain pure-bred horses to improve the quality of British cavalry remounts. He also wrote Gleanings from the Deserts of Arabia (1881). Octavo.
