Description:
166-173 (h) x 222mm, i.e. very slightly trapezoidal. Original albumen photograph. This famous photograph is one of a series of photographs taken of the Rossetti family by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, (i.e. Lewis Carroll), in the garden of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's house in Cheyne Walk on 7 October 1863. On verso, written in the hand of Helen Angeli Rossetti, daughter of William Michael Rossetti: "Photograph taken by Ch. L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) [sic] in the Cheyne Walk Garden, c. 1865? Probably 1863 (Autumn)." The composition, arranged by Carroll and subsequently photographed and printed by Carroll, shows the Rossetti's in their garden, from left to right: Christina G. Rossetti, Maria Francesca Rossetti, Frances Livinia Rossetti and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the latter two seated at a table playing chess. Of a similar print, Christina Rossetti wrote, describing the day ìthe author of Wonderland photographed us in the gardenî: ìIt was our aim to appear in the full family group of five; but whilst… Read More

Description:
London: Vale Press, 1898. First Edition Thus. First Edition Thus. Two volumes. Fine Condition. An utterly magnificent, elaborately inlaid binding (both covers and spine) by the renowned English (and later American) bookbinder, Alfred de Sauty, who is widely regarded as one of the finest bookbinders of the early 1900ís, originally working as a finisher for Riviere. De Sauty then designed bindings for the prestigious Hampstead Bindery, taught bookbinding in England, and later emigrated to the U.S. to become the head of the esteemed bindery at R. R. Donnelley in Chicago (see below). In this exquisite binding for the Vale Press Keats (1898) we find an intricately and finely designed inlaid binding with OVER 250 individual inlaid pieces of varying colored morocco in a highly appealing design. The covers are filled with gathered leaves and grape clumps forming and emanating from the sides, and all coming together in a central, interwoven group. There are gilt-stamped winding vines, as well as attractive… Read More

Paris: Librairie A. Rouquette, 1900. First Edition. First Edition. Quarto. 9 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. A monumental binding by GRUEL, crafted in 1900, with a central original watercolor painting of a couple on a couch kissing, under slightly domed plastic-like covering, appearing to pre-date the first Cosway bindings by a few years. As J. H. Stonehouse, the manager of Henry Sotheran wrote in their Piccadilly Notes of 1913, ìthe firm claimed this style as invented by us 10 years ago,î thus putting the beginning of the Cosway bindings in 1903. Exquisitely crafted full sumptuous black Morocco with copious onlays on both covers and spine in ochre, red-brown, beige, maroon and dark brown comprising geometric swirls, blossoms, stems, and the like, and magnificently tooled in gilt on both covers and spine. Full brown Morocco doublures heavily gilt with ruling, border design and corner designs, and with the bookbinder's signature ìGRUELî stamped in gilt near the bottom.

Description:
[Isle of Wight: n.p., 1874. Offered here is a wonderful, original and very large size albumen print made by Julia Margaret Cameron, one of the most important portraitists of the 19th Century. The photograph was made when the Du Mauriers visited Cameron at Freshwater, on the Isle of Wight, in 1874. The portrait captures May with a poignant and soft gaze, in the garden, and clutching a small assemblage of flowers. This fine albumen print, in its original card mount, measures 14 x 10 inches, and is in fine condition. Importantly, the print is inscribed and signed on the mount by Cameron: ìFrom life, registered photograph, copy right, Julia Margaret Cameron, Freshwater, Sep. 1874.î Cameron is widely considered the foremost British portrait photographer of her time. She was commissioned by the Du Mauriers in September of 1874, to sit for photographic portraits. The illustrator and novelis, George du Maurier, together with his wife, and his daughter, May, went to Cameronís home at the village of… Read More

Description:
New York: Privately Printed, 1905. First and Only Edition. First and Only Edition. THREE VOLUMES, 4to, 13 x 10 inches. Vol 1, Vol 2: 1902; Vol 3 (the supplement): 1905. A stunning binding with SIX FULL INLAID DOUBLURES (see below) of ultimate quality and beauty, as befitting The Club Bindery. This is the vanishingly scarce full catalogue of books in Borden's collection, privately printed for M. C. D. Borden (1842-1912), famed antiquarian book collector and printed-cloth tycoon. The book is of great importance, though little bibliographic information has been written about it, owing to its scarcity. To our knowledge, no other copies have been located in institutional records, nor are there any auction or sales records of any kind. This particular copy, however, appears in Tom Boss' "Bound to be the Best, The Club Bindery," Item 24, where he notes: [This binding] was probably commissioned by Borden for presentation to his friends." He further notes (in a private conversation), that since Borden was an… Read More

London: Published by R. Noble, for R. Edwards, 1797. First Edition. First Edition. Folio size, 11 x 13 inches. Half red morocco, by RiviËre, spine gilt in compartments with six raised bands. Young's masterpiece of this ambitious work, with both the rare explanation leaf and the exceedingly rare 1874 prospectus by James Bain soliciting subscriptions for a projected set of reproductions of the original watercolors (never issued). 43 monumental illustrations by Blake, being four part-titles, and 39 stunning full-page illustrations by William Blake after his own designs around letterpress text in his inimitable flowing, symbolic style. Blake had been commissioned by Edwards to illustrate Young's popular work, and produced 537 watercolors. As a trial these first four sections or "Nights" were published with 43 engravings by Blake; but the book presumably did not sell well, and no further engravings were made.

Description:
Dillingen: Caspari Sutoris, 1630. 12mo. 5 x 3 inches. Magnificently bound in 19th century crushed red morocco, by CapÈ, and finely tooled in gilt by Marius-Michel, featuring an all-over fanfare binding with strapwork, leafy sprays and other small ornaments; spine with title and compartments tooled in gilt with five raised bands, inner gilt dentelles, signed by CapÈ to head of front free endpaper. Engraved architectural title, coat-of-arms and 11 exquisite full-page illustrations, woodcut initials and tail-pieces. A fabulous and scarce early work examining and presenting the association of poetry to painting, a concept often misunderstood by later followers, who wrongly interpreted Horace's original famous phrase, "ut pictura poeses" ("as is painting, so is poetry") to completely conflate poetry and painting, but not in its original intention which was to try to use aspects of painting as a metaphor to illustrate ways to express beautiful poetry. Among the more prominent of these followers was… Read More

Description:
Springfield: The Wayside Press, 1896. First Edition. First Edition. Offered here is the finest "Bradley, His Book" collection we have seen in 40 years, with an extra fine set of the seven volumes, as well as the rare 8th issue, in the original uncompleted form, which one never finds. Five of the seven have original mailing envelopes (one of which is glassine for July number, the others paper). As well, the collection includes another fine copy of Vol. One, A PROOF COPY, and a true one-of-a-kind, being inscribed by Will Bradley on the dedication page: "One of the first five copies of magazines, April 29, '96.

As per the account of Edith Emerson, friend and eventual curator of Violet Oakleyís estate, Green painted it as a present for Cozens, with a gentle ribbing implied in the title. As the story goes, Cozens, who became quite proficient in her gardening skills for the beautiful estate, at the beginning of her tenure as gardener couldn't quite get the names of the flowers straight. So after misnaming nearly a dozen flowers referring to "clematis," Green came up with this painting of lilies and snapdragons and presented it to Henrietta, naming it, sardonically, "Clematis XII," as in, "the twelfth try" at getting the name (or flower) right.
