Almanach de St-Petersbourg
0. 1913. Cour Monde et Ville 1913/14. 4me Année. St. Petersburg [& Leipzig], 1913; xv. 676, xvi-xxxiv pp.; publisher's dark green cloth, lettered in gilt, red lettering-piece on spine, red edges; spine slightly faded and slightly dull, the leather lettering piece a little rubbed, two small, almost invisible stains on front cover, contents slightly embrowned, particularly in the extreme margins; overall a very good copy, the two stains on the cover being more like small, slightly darker areas. A rare publication which contained all they wanted to know - who was who with addresses - this takes up most of the book -, services, where to get what (including perfume, champagne, automobiles, dresses, furs, jewellery, suits, pianos, furniture, but also "grottes pour aquariums", "glaces", "fruits secs", "fusils de chasse" etc. etc.), where to eat, where to stay, spas abroad, and a very great deal more. The Nabokovs head the Ns in the addresses section. Replete with advertisements, some full-page, many illustrated, two in colour. Mostly in French, though some of the advertisements are in Russian, German or English. The preface,by F.van der Hoeven, is dated "mai 1913".

Fairy Tales, Selected from the Best Authors.
0. 1788. [Volume I]. London, Printed for W. Lane, Leadenhall Street,,1788; 12mo; [vi], 288pp..; contemporary sheep, spine gilt-ruled, red lettering-piece; front joint split, front board held only by its strings, loss of leather of spine all along the split in the joint;, boards slightly scuffed and marked; lacks frontispiece and [2] plates, top half of second leaf of prelims missing,, first gathering loose, corners of outer margins at the top of c. 20 pages cut round at some point,; contemporary owner's names on front paste-down, with 20th century bookplate super-imposed . Lane's "Tales of the Fairies" is very rare, even for 18th century fairy tale editions. Our copy is offered with all its faults because it is so rarely met with, but it has been tampered with by a former owner who wanted to conceal the fact that it was only the first of two volumes and that it had already lost its copper-plates: words on the title-page have been gently rubbed out - presumably "Adorned with plates" and "Volume I" - and the words "of the first" have been rubbed out at the bottom of the last page, so it no longer reads "End of the first Volume"; presumably part of leaf [ii] of the prelims - the contents leaf - was removed for the same reason. The contents are otherwise complete, and comprise; The Introduction. History of the Princess Hebe and the Fairy Anguiletta. Hitory of the Royal Ram or the Wishes. History of Graciosa and Percinet. History of Finetta. History of the White Cat. History of Princess Carpillona. History of the Pidgeon and Dove. History of the Yellow Dwarf.History of Young and Handsome.

A rare encyclopaedic compendium of medical practice for German-speaking general practitioners of the time: "Wir haben bei seiner Abfassung hauptsächlich ein .. Bedürfnis practischer Aerzte, und zwar solcher zu befriedigen gesucht, denen die Vorsehung nichr Glücksgüter genug zugeworfen hat, um den zu einer nach Begriffen unsers Zeitalters eingerichteten Büchersammlung, erforderlichen Aufwand machen zu können." Sadly our set lacks Volume II. The remaining three offered here are firmly-bound and internally clean. The original owner, 'J.Nielsen', has entered his name neatly on the front free endpapers. The volumes are tick and would cost more in postage than is automatically allowed.
