Description:
London: Longman’s, Green, 1899. First edition (xx, 489) with 2 maps and 36 full-page illustrations by G. Leon Little. Card from The Atheneum signed by Haggard, dated 25 April 1921 (‘Faithfully yours/ H. Rider Haggard’) inserted. Octavo in blue publisher’s cloth, gilt titles and decoration. H. S. F. Jebb’s copy with his bookplate and Christmas greetings from ‘Florrie’ (quite possibly Florence Lady Bell-- social reformer and author of a study of Middlesbrough, 1907). Edges rubbed, occasional light foxing. After the death of his son in 1891, Haggard withdrew from public life for a while. Eventually, however, he recovered sufficiently to stand (unsuccessfully) for Parliament in East Norfolk, and then pushed on, eager ‘to do something...more practical than the mere invention of romance upon romance’(Cohen, 158). To that end he addressed himself to the desperate state of farming in England and kept a diary for 1898, published as A Farmer’s Year (1899),… Read more

Description:

Paris: A. & W. Galignani, 1840. Probably from Baudry’s European Library (pp. xv, 174; [6], 292-421 [2]). Octavo (22.5 cm) in black publisher’s cloth, impressed decoration to covers, gilt titles to spine.  A bit of wear to spine top and bottom; front hinge starting, rear hinge re-inforced; two spots on front cover; first and last few pages foxed. The pagination breaks at p. 174 and begins again at p. 292. At one time The Bubbles of Canada probably was bound with The Clockmaker since a continuously paginated volume described by McGahern comprising these two titles ends, as ours does, with page 421; but as all the titles were likely pirated for a Paris edition, it is difficult to know for certain how the Letter-Bag came to be bound together with The Bubbles.
 
Of the two, The Letter-Bag is more accessible.  It is Haliburton’s Ship of Fools. Each passenger’s particular combination of social prejudice, self-interest, and ignorance suggests something of the nature of new immigrants and… Read more

Description:
Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1979. Limited edition, No. 60 of 100, signed by Russell Harper (xvi, 204, index), 164 reproductions in colour and b&w of Krieghoff’s paintings (and some merely attributed to him). Quarto (25 cm.), in three-quarter red cloth over complimentary marbled paper, matching slipcase; gilt titles to cover and spine. Cornelius Krieghoff’s two thousand ‘canvases of popular, anecdotal, genre subjects brought new dimensions to the Canadian scene and a colourful romanticism’ (Harper, CE) and depict in dramatic, affectionate detail everyday events in mid-century Quebec (especially)-- as for example ‘The Habitant Farm’, ‘Run Off the Road in a Blizzard’, ‘The Baker’s Mishap’. The Thompson collection, which can be seen at the Art Gallery of Ontario, is an especially generous sampling of Krieghoff’s paintings, and this title is an especially handsome survey of Krieghoff’s life and work. A scarce edition, scarcer… Read more

Description:

London and Aylesbury: the Author, 1885. Second edition, dedicated to Sir Henry De Burgh-Lawson, Bt. (pp. frontis, xiii, [16], 576, index of places, index of names). Large folio (45 cm) in three-quarter brown faux leather cloth over textured maroon cloth, gilt decoration and new gilt title on label, marbled edges; frontis portrait of Harrison in ambassador’s uniform (probably Peruvian); fifty-eight views, illustrations, and approximately two hundred pedigrees including, for example, those of Queen Victoria and George Washington. The backstrip at some point replaced with stout but unappealing cloth; frontis was found loosely inserted and is now neatly tipped in (It is a few cm. shorter and may originate with the first edition or may have been trimmed); several minor nicks and chips remain; rear endpaper replaced.
 
George Henry Harrison, the author of The History of Yorkshire: Volume I,  the Wapentake of Gilling West is reliably reported as having been born in 1817 at Whashton, Kirby… Read more

Description:
Saanichton: Hancock House, 1978. First edition, signed by Hembroff-Schleicher (408, index), frontispiece photo of author, many Carr b&w sketches published for the first time, album of photographs of Carr et al. Quarto (23 cm.) in kelly green cloth with matching slipcase. (A few copies apparently were issued in this slipcase. A pencilled note under the author’s signature on the title page reads ‘87/150’.) The author was twenty-three when she met Emily Carr who, as she says, was full of life and did not act like an old woman (Carr was fifty-eight), and they went on to paint together for quite a few years. The account either was badly edited or not edited at all and has something of the scrapbook about it. Hembroff-Schleicher kept lots of notes about her experiences with Carr and seems to have included all of them one way or another, but at the cost of telling a coherent story. Sometimes a sort of officious, argumentative settling of scores takes over as the author reveals that a… Read more

Description:

New York: Riley, 1809.  First edition (pp. frontis, 330) Tall octavo (22 cm) in contemporary full calf, new gilt titles on label to spine. In 1760 Alexander Henry (1739-1824) accompanied the British army under General Amherst in its advance upon Montreal from Oswego on Lake Ontario; he was hoping to exploit certain commercial opportunities from his base at Albany. However, his three boats of provisions and military stores were lost at Rapides des Cedres “together with upwards of a hundred men”, and it was not until the next year that Henry succeeded in reaching Michilimackinac via the Ottawa and French rivers. In the years that followed, Henry traded between Sault Ste. Marie, Detroit, and Niagara sometimes disguising himself as a Canadian in encounters with Indians who had supported the French in the late war and were hostile to the British.  The fur trade (and a strong streak of curiosity) eventually led Henry to the Red River country and further out onto the plains, to Cumberland House and… Read more

He spent sixteen years with Lord Robert Sutton at Kelham House in Nottinghamshire, and when he set up for himself his practice was chiefly within twenty miles of Newark-on-Trent. The Treatise on Fruit Trees was...occasioned and promoted by several gentlemen who liked to spend some time in their gardens. It contains a catalogue of fruit, directions for draining, burning clay, manuring, all the arts of pruning, describes… Read more

[A survey of British canals and inland waterways]. Hannover: H. M. Pockwitz, 1780.

Quarto (26.5 cm) in full calf, gilt titles and decorations to spine, rubricated edges. Text in German. With the bookplate of Adolph Hugel.

(Well, it does make for a more substantial volume.) Spine skilfully repaired, new matching endpapers; tips and edges a bit worn. First few pages of text lightly toned and with a few spots; otherwise a clean, solid copy.

London: L. Davis, et al., 1787. Third edition corrected, complete in four volumes (pp. xvi, 267; xi, 272; xii, 296; xi, 367, appendix). Tall octavo (21 cm) in original polished and mottled calf; complete with 65 fine copperplate engravings by Lodge to accompany the various demonstrations in mathematics and physics which featured, among others, a diving bell, a planetarium, and a magic lantern. Rich gilt titles and decorations to spines.  Volume I (Arithmetical and Mechanical Experiments), Volume II (Experiments in Optics, Chromatics, and Acoustics), Volume II (Electrical and Magnetical Experiments), Volume IV (Experiments in Pneumatics, Hydrology, and Pyrotechnics). The discovery of an error in the first edition of Hooper’s book, an error which first appeared and then was corrected in a later edition of EdmĂ© Gilles Guyot’s Nouvelles rĂ©crĂ©ations physiques et mathĂ©matiques, suggests Hooper may have, shall we say, borrowed enthusiastically from that source error and all.  Martin Gardner in… Read more
