Description:
London: Sands & Company, 1901. First edition. Publishers dark blue cloth over boards, front cover pictorially stamped in red, black, brown and white. [48] pages. Three-color pictorial title-page and twenty-one full page black and white drawings.A Fine copy.This book contains several illustrations of a cat called Peter. "It is not, I think, too far-fetched to speculate that Louis Wain's having met Peter changed the course of domestic history. Certainly, the attitude of the general public towards cats, and their feeling (or otherwise) for cats was greatly affected by Louis Wain's work. Where did Peter come from? In later years Louis' sisters claimed they had given him to Louis and Emily as a wedding present. This seems unlikely, as relations were exceedingly strained at the time, unless the present was intended as a deliberate slight, in which case the result was more than ironic. On another occasion, Claire Wain said that the two youngest sisters, Felicie and herself, had given Louis 'a beautiful… Read more

Its release coincided with several exhibitions of his illustrations in New York. Very Good +.

Harper's Ferry. Pocket New Testament bound in red sheep over card, measuring 3 x 4.25". Extremities somewhat rubbed but in overall solid condition. Offsetting to pastedowns. Various selections dog-eared but no markings to internal text. Multiple ownership signatures from the prominent Koonce family, most notably the inscription to the front endpaper: "Presented to Mollie E. Koonce by a patriot soldier at the line of surrender in Harper's Ferry to the Rebels under Gen. Hill." Other signatures include Howard Koonce, Alice R. Koonce, and Peachie Koonce. A unique artifact that speaks to women's presence, influence, and the risks they faced in wartime.The Mollie E. Koonce of the ownership is possibly Mary E. Koonce daughter of George Koonce, an entrepreneur and statesman; several other family members' names also appear in the Bible (Howard, who went on to become a physician, and Estelle May "Peach" Koonce). History has remembered and recorded George Koonce. The proprietor of a Harper's Ferry general… Read more

Description:
London: Printed for Thomas Tegg, 1824. Second edition. Four octavo volumes in the publisher's blue-grey paper-covered boards with cloth spines and paper spine labels. Complete with the engraved frontis of Thomas Warton. Staining along spine edge indicates some type of repair to the spine, but no cloth added, not rebacked, recased or otherwise muddled by restoration. Paper worn from board edges and spine cloth chipped at extremities, but internal contents are generally attractive. Warton's work on English Poetry, originally published 1774 - 1781, was quite valuable to the academic community, but Price's editorial notations in the second edition are quite phenomenal. He discusses the importance of Beowulf at length and highlights a few of the alliterative poems contained in M.S. Cott. Nero A.x. This is the first publication of any work from this manuscript, which includes: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, Cleanness, and Patience. All works are attributed to the same author, although still… Read more
