Item Description: London George C. Harrap & Co 1931; 1932; 1933; 1934, 1934. Together four volumes. First Editions, First Printings and each being the vellum bound SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, signed by Arthur Rackham and numbered. Limited to 550 copies (Moore), 575 copies (Ruskin), 410 copies (Rossetti), and 410 copies (Browning). Each book with four fine colour plates and other fine decorations printed in various colours or in black throughout by Arthur Rackham. 8vo, publisher's original de luxe flexible vellum bindings, each one lettered in gilt on the upper cover, Rackham decorated endpapers printed in various colours, each in the original slipcases, three of which with printed paper labels hand-numbered. The set now housed together in a fine custom folding box backed in rust morocco featuring four faux spines with raised bands and fine gilt lettering and tooling. 36pp, 48pp; 46pp; 45pp. Each book is essentially as mint and pristine inside and out, the slipcases well preserved with only minimal evidence of age. The Rossetti is apparently an out of sequence copy, signed by Rackham and with its number blocked out. FIRST EDITION, LIMITED SIGNED ISSUE OF EACH OF THESE CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED BY ARTHUR RACKHAM. ALL IN AN UNUSUALLY FINE STATE OF PRESERVATION, A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE ALL FOUR OF THESE ANNUAL LIMITED EDITION PUBLICATIONS TOGETHER. Harrap had made arrangements with Rackham to publish two books a year beginning in 1931. Each year there would be one long book and one short one. Collected here are the four short books. In 1931 Clement Moore’s classic Christmas poem received first class treatment by Arthur Rackham, and would be the only one written by an American. This no doubt explains why the copies of the limited edition reserved for America sold out quickly. In England it is considered to be the best known American poem. 1932 brought out John Ruskin's "Golden River". This story is told in the form of a medieval legend, and the illustrations are delightfully expressive of this spirit. It is the only one of the four written in prose. GOBLIN MARKET is a narrative poem by Christina Rossetti. She told her publisher, that the poem, often interpreted as having features of sexual imagery, was not meant for children. However, in public she stated that the poem was intended for children, and went on to write many children's poems. With illustrations both bursting with happiness and sufficiently frightening, fans of this master illustrator were not disappointed with THE PIED PIPER. It remains one of the best of Rackham’s shorter works and perhaps the finest rendition of Browning’s classic yet produced. Bookseller Inventory # 27254

Item Description: Mercure de France, 1904. Couverture rigide. - Mercure de France, Paris 1904, 12x19cm, relié sous étui. - Edition originale de la traduction française établie par Marcel Proust, un des exemplaires de première émission numérotés à la presse. Reliure à la bradel en demi percaline indigo, dos lisse orné d'un motif floral doré, double filet en queue, pièce de titre de chagrin rouge, plats de papier marbré, couvertures conservées, reliure de l'époque; chemise-étui en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse, date dorée en queue, intérieur de daim bleu marine, chemise-étui signée de P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Précieux envoi autographe de l'auteur à son jeune ami écrivain Max Daireaux. S'il a bien connu la famille Daireaux à Neuilly ce n'est qu'en 1908 à leur retour de Buenos Aires que Proust se lie d'amitié avec le jeune Max, de treize ans son cadet. Ils entretiendront, pendant plusieurs années, une importante correspondance essentiellement littéraire. On note ainsi que la première lettre de Proust à ce nouvel ami, écrite en septembre 1908 sous forme de poème dédicatoire, est jointe à un exemplaire des Plaisirs et les jours. Plus tard, Proust appuiera la publication des écrits de son protégé dans le Figaro et, en 1913, sollicitera ses lumières scientifiques lors de la correction de son manuscrit de la Recherche. Il lui soulignera à cette occasion qu'il a utilisé dans "Les Jeunes filles" une anecdote survenue chez les Daireaux: " Il n'y a (dans le second volume) qu'un seul mot bête et il a été dit par moi chez vous." (lettre du 19 juin 1913). [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First edition of the French translation by Marcel Proust, one of the copies of the first issue numbered press. Binding to bradel half calico indigo, smooth back with a gold floral pattern, double thread tail piece as red shagreen dishes marbled paper covers preserved, contemporary binding. Valuable autograph of the author to his young writer friend Max Daireaux. If he had known the family Daireaux Neuilly it was not until 1908 to return to Buenos Aires Proust became friends with the young Max, thirteen years his junior. They will maintain for several years, a significant primarily literary correspondence. We thus note that the first letter from Proust to this new friend, written in September 1908 as a dedicatory poem is attached to a copy of Pleasures and days. Later Proust support the publication of the writings of his protege in the Figaro and in 1913, its scientists seek when correcting his manuscript Research lights. It will highlight it on this occasion he used in "The Girls" anecdote occurred in Daireaux: "There is (in the second volume) one word beast and it has been said by me in you . "(letter of 19 June 1913). Bookseller Inventory # 42817

Item Description: Mercure de France, 1904. couverture souple. - Mercure de France, Paris 1904, 12x19cm, broché. - Edition originale de la traduction, des notes et de la préface établies par Marcel Proust, un des exemplaires de première émission numérotés à la presse. Précieux envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à la baronne de Pierrebourg : ". hommage de respectueuse reconnaissance." Restaurations et manque comblés aux premiers feuillets, agréable exemplaire au papier fragile. La baronne Marguerite Aimery Harty de Pierrebourg, femme de lettres et maîtresse de Paul Hervieu, tenait un Salon littéraire brillant où se sont croisés notamment Raymond Poincaré, Henri de Régnier, Paul Valéry, Alfred Capus, Abel Hermant, René Boylesve, Edmond Jaloux, Gérard d'Houville, Edouard Estaunié, André Gide, Gabriele d'Annunzio et Robert de Flers. Régulièrement fréquenté par Proust, le « Salon de l'avenue du bois » de Madame de Pierrebourg fut avec celui de sa rivale Madeleine Lemaire, et ceux de Madame Strauss et de Madame Aubernon, le creuset des nombreux portraits psychologiques de la Recherche. Mais Marguerite de Pierrebourg, Claude Ferval de son nom de plume, était surtout une romancière admirée de Proust à laquelle il confiait, à chaque nouveau roman qu'elle publiait, son admiration et son propre désir d'écriture. Ainsi dans une lettre de 1903, l'émouvant commentaire d'un passage de Plus fort semble-t-il annoncer, dix ans avant la Recherche, le futur sacrifice de Proust à l'écriture et, dans le roman, l'échec de Swann à atteindre cette grâce : « Dans tout cela une philosophie sur laquelle on voudrait revenir et vous demander par exemple si c'est bien vrai que la vie nous accorde la grâce que nous désirons à condition que nous lui sacrifions le reste. Si on pensait que cela peut servir à quelque chose de sacrifier le reste, ce serait bien vite fait. Mais le reste abêtit, empêche de voir en face sa douleur. Enfin c'est difficile à dire. Mais vous avez raison. » Ce sentiment qui lui est encore si « difficile à dire », c'est précisément le sujet même de la Recherche. Et son aboutissement, la reconquête de cette vie par l'œuvre romanesque, il en formulera plus aisément l'impérieuse nécessité dans une lettre à Pierrebourg de 1908 : « vous êtes romancier, vous ! Si je pouvais créer comme vous des êtres et des situations, que je serais heureux ! » Assertion à laquelle fait écho l'interrogation de Proust : « Suis-je romancier ? » au début de son premier carnet. Car cette année est aussi celle du début de l'écriture de la Recherche dont on trouve la genèse dans ce fameux « carnet de 1908 ». Plus qu'une conseillère bienveillante Mme de Pierrebourg inspirera le personnage d'Odette (jusqu'au prénom d'Odette, emprunté à un roman autobiographique de Ferval) et sera l'un des plus fervents soutiens de Du Côté de chez Swann. Précieuse dédicace qui fait écho à celle que Proust lui adressera dix ans plus tard sur le premier volume de La Recherche. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition of the translation, notes and the preface prepared by Marcel Proust, one of the first issue numbered copies to the press. Precious autograph signed by the author Baroness Pierrebourg ". tribute of respectful gratitude ." Restorations and lack met the first sheets, nice copy the fragile paper. Baroness Margaret Aimery Harty Pierrebourg, woman of letters and mistress of Paul Hervieu, took a brilliant literary Salon where particularly have crossed Raymond Poincaré, Henri de Regnier, Paul Valery, Alfred Capus, Abel Hermant, René Boylesve, Jaloux, Gerard Houville of Edward Estaunié, André Gide, Gabriele d'Annunzio and Robert de Flers. Regularly frequented by Proust, the "Avenue of the timber Salon" of Madame de Pierrebourg was with that of its rival Madeleine Lemaire, and those of Mrs. and Mrs. Strauss Aubernon, the crucible of the many psychological portraits of Research. But Margaret of Pierrebourg Claude Ferval his pen name, was primarily a novelist admired Proust when he confided to each new novel she published, his admiratio. Bookseller Inventory # 48167

RUSKIN'S OWN COPY WITH HIS BRANTWOOD BOOKPLATE ON FRONT PASTE-DOWN.Complete with 16pp publisher's catalogue (dated June 1857) bound in at end and the nineteenth century binder's ticket of Westley of London on rear paste-down.First edition of Ruskin's drawing lessons for children. Intended for those without recourse to a drawing-master, it provides a series of eminently practical exercises supported by illustrations.Ruskin was always greatly interested in the teaching of art. Perhaps his most famous pupil was Alice Liddell (Carroll's 'Alice') to whom he taught drawing and painting, as a result of which he appears in 'Alice in Wonderland' as the 'Drawing Master', an 'old Conger Eel' who attended 'once a week' and 'taught us Drawling, Stretching and Fainting in Coils'.Ruskin's lifelong love of the English Lakes began when he sat by Coniston at the age of eighteen, but it was not until his early fifties that he finally purchased Brantwood, one of the most splendid houses in the Lake District. Although he had not seen the interior he reasoned that any house opposite Coniston 'must be beautiful' and in 1871 secured the freehold from William Linton for the sum of £1,500. He moved in a year later, and the house became not merely a blissfully happy home but a renowned centre of artistic and literary endeavour for Ruskin and his circle. Brantwood remains today a place of pilgrimage for admirers and scholars of one of the greatest Victorian polymaths. Bookseller Inventory # 7511

Item Description: London: Smith Elder & Co., 1851. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition, 18 x 13.5cm (8vo), in publisher's cream paper-covered boards w/printed border, title & designs by Doyle to fr. cover, printed borders & central device to rear, a.e.g., coated decorative pale green ep.s w/binder's ticket (Westleys & Co., London; Ball 103B) to rear pastedown, [i-vi], [1] 2-52 pp. w/24 wood engravings (incl. fr. cover designs, frontis & prelim titlepage designs) by the Dalziels, Harvey Orrin Smith, Isabel Thompson etc. after Doyle, +2pp. publ. adverts to rear (undated, but obviously from Dec. 1850). Printed by Henry Vizetelly, London. Interestingly, Doyle misspelt the title's final word on his woodblock for the prelim titlepage as "STYRIA" & to correct this the engraver trimmed off the right-hand upward angle of the "Y" creating a crooked "I"; however, the misspelling remains uncorrected in the fr. cover design. Inscribed to verso of fr. ep.: "Rose Emma Fawcett from her affecte Papa, Novbr 7th 1852." Binding Good (expertly rebacked w/ivory linen, corners worn w/moderate paper loss, & a few rub spots & scratches to paper); contents Very Good (occas. lt. thumbing, & several illus. lightly coloured by a prev. owner). Slater 226-27, Ashley IV 181 ("it is important that the original covers should be preserved, as the design upon the front includes two [wood]cuts which are not reproduced in the body of the work"), Ray 142 (Doyle "made a little masterpiece of Ruskin's fairy tale"--see also pp.xxii, 87 & 88), de Beaumont 348; see also Wolff 5993a Note. Together with a brilliant copy of the first American edition (Boston: Mayhew & Baker, 1860), 18 x 13.5cm (small 4to), in publisher's crimson morocco-grain cloth w/embossed borders to covers, gilt decoration to fr. cover, gilt title to fr. cover & spine, a.e.g., cream ep.s, [1-13] 14-68 pp. w/numerous wood engravings after Doyle, the originals re-engraved by Kilburn & Mallowry, Boston. Printed by H.O. Houghton & Co., Cambridge MA. Binding Near-Fine (minor staining & bubbling to ep.s); contents Near-Fine. Both volumes enclosed in a fine custom-made pale tan linen clamshell box w/gilt title on brown morocco label to spine. As Osborne (which has the 2nd British ed.) reports, "in 1841 the twelve-year-old Euphemia (Effie) Chalmers Gray dared Ruskin to write a fairy tale for her." Ruskin & Effie were married in 1848, but 7 years later she filed for annulment claiming that Ruskin was unwilling to consummate the marriage--whether or not this was merely a ploy to gain her freedom so she could marry her not-so-secret lover John Everett Millais has long been a topic of discussion (Effie's huge commercialistic influence on Millais's subsequent career has elicited the sarcastic speculation that had Ruskin remained married to her, he would have written "Bubbles").

Dans sa préface, « Sur la lecture », Proust évoque tout d’abord ses souvenirs d’enfance liés à ses lectures, avant de se faire plus critique et de se démarquer de Ruskin, lui portant régulièrement dans ses notes de bas de page, la contradiction et élaborant au long de sa réflexion sa conception de l’écriture. « Sésame et les lys est à bien des égards le sésame de La Recherche » Antoine Compagnon.

Item Description: George Allen, London, 1871. First. Full calf leather with 6 raised bands and dark leather labels with author, title and date applied. Marbled endpapers. All bound similar and signed Ramage. 9 volumes, 6 with small "Byrdcliffe" bookplate inside front cover. Flors Clavigera described as follows: 8 bound volumes with NO Index volume. The books were printed between 1871 and 1884. Ariadne Florentina described as follows: Published in 1876. Numerous plates within. Lecture I: The Art of Engraving; II The Relation of Engraving to Other Arts in Florence; III The Technics of Wood and Engraving; IV The Technics of Metal Engraving; V Design in the German Schools of Engraving (Holbein and Durer); VI Design in the Florentine Schools of Engraving (Sandro Botticell). As lovelly as this set of books is, it is further enhanced with the bookplate of Byrdcliffe being present in 6 of the 9 volumes. Byrdcliffe was the Utopian Arts and Crafts Community in Woodstock, NY founded by Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead at the turn of the 20th Century. This set was in the comunity reference library there, and represents an incredible link between Ruskin, Whitehead and the American Arts and Crafts Movement. The Binder, John Ramage, was born in London in 1836. When Ramage came out of his apprenticeship in 1856, he took the unusual step for an English binder of going to Paris and working under Lortic, one of the leading French binders of the day. In 1860 Ramage returned to Britain and purchased the Edinburgh business of Alexander Banks Jnr, stating in the 1861 census returns that he employed 8 men, 3 boys, 6 women and 1 girl. Three years later he moved his business to London, where there was more work. He moved to larger premises in Warwick Lane in 1870, and from there he went to Warwick Square and in 1891 to Creed Lane. He died in 1911. VG, binding quite nice, Scattered light foxing in spots, but not prevalent. A very appealing set with Byrdcliffe bookplates. Bookseller Inventory # 149592
