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".

Les Aventures de Maitre Tetu
0. et de Miss Docile. Conte Allegorique. Traduit de l'Anglais pour l'instruction de la Jeunesse. Paris: Delarue,& Lille: Castiaux, n.d. [c. 1820?]; oblong 16mo (c. 12.5 x 11 cm).; 63 pp. with frontispiece and seven plates, all wood-cuts, coloured by hand; publisher's printed boards, title within an decorative border on front, illustration within same border on rear board; lacking spine, boards marked and a little darkened, original owner's name on half-title, text lightly spotted. An extremely rare French children's book, printed in Lille, an allegorical moral purportedly based on an English original. Experts have been consulted in vain to find an English book of which this could be a version, but it could nevertheless have been taken from an English source which was part of a larger collection of moral tales. The wood-cuts (hand-coloured as issued) are bold and very good. Two bear the initials C.S.J. in the block. The allegory itself shows Master Headstrong led astray by letting himself be led by Passion, but finally finding the path to Virtue and Religion through the good offices of Reason.

Bilder Und Reime,
0. 1184. Reime und Bilder fuer Kinder. Erste [und Zweite] Lieferung. Dresden, bei J.Naumann. Pictures and Rhymes, Rhymes and Pictures, for Children. London, D. Bogue, n.d. [1844]; c. 16.5 x 12.5 cm.; English publisher's red cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, front board lettered in gilt with gilt pictorial vignette, yellow endpapers, a.e.g.; recased, one gathering detached, scattered foxing, some light finger-marks, light damp-stain to nearly half the contents. A rare and charming German illustrated children's book, which seems to survive as often as not in this two-language edition. This is not properly a bi-lingual edition, but the original Dresden edition, each page with a lithographed illustration and verse in German, printed on one side only, bound together with an English translation in letterpress of each verse, also printed on one side only. Compare the Oppenheim copy (Hauswedell & Nolte, Auktion 200 [1974], Lot 191, in later half leather), likewise German and English; Seebass II, 186 [offering just the Dresden Edition, a slightly cropped copy]: "Originalausgabe eines der feinsten Kinderbuecher der vierziger Jahre; es zeigt den Einfluss der Hey-Speckterschen Fabelausgben.."; Rümann, Die Illustrierten Bücher des 19. Jahrhunderts, No.1908. Hoff-Budde's 1922 bibliography of works illustrated by Ludwig Richter lists 29 of the 48 illustrations as lithographed after Richter. In our copy the first book of the German "Bilder und Reime" consists of illustrated title-page and 22 pages [of 24]: it lacks two pages - page 14 "Miesekaetzchen" and Page 16 "Der Morgen"; its first four pages were bound in the wrong order when the book was recased, while two other illustrations, pages 12 and 13, were misnumbered from the start by the printer. The second book of "Bilder und Reime" is complete, with title-page and 24 pages of illustrated text, though dampstained within the lower third of the pages. The English "Pictures and Rhymes" has one title-page, in letter-press, (as is correct,) and 47 (of 48) pages, the translator's "Preface" being printed on the verso of the first page of English verse; it lacks the text for "Puss". Photocopies of all the missing pages have been obtained and are supplied with our copy.

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.

Moon 359 (4), quoting from the "Guardian of Education": "..We have of late seen some Juvenile Libraries, in which this interesting history found no place; and, in our opinion, the work is amongst those which ought not to be superceded [sic] by others of inferior merit".

First, and probably sole edition. A jeu d'esprit which casts a satirical eye on the manners of its period, with a remarkable copper-engraved frontispiece by d'Argent showing the protagonist - in the costume of the late eighteenth century - about to board an air balloon. A second volume is announced on page 222, but we do not believe this ever appeared.

Young Englands Little Library.
0. 1844. A Collection of Original Tales for Children, in Prose and Verse. By Eminent Authors. London, Wm. S. Orr & Co. Paternoster Row, 1844; small 4to; twentieth century binder's cloth, with gilt title "Little Library"; ink smudge to extreme outer edge of c. 30 pages, three or four very short marginal tears. The volume consists of eleven parts, which were also available to buy separately, of 24 to 32 pages, with numerous lithographic plates, most of which are lightly spotted. After the title-page, printed in red and black, and the frontispiece full-length portrait of "the Editor", there is an introduction and a contents leaf, which has been annotated in light pencil giving references in the Osborne Collection catalogue for such individual works present here as are listed there. The contents are: Adam the Gardener [abridged from Charles Cowden Clarke]; The Princess Narina [also atributed to Clarke]; Number One [Mrs S.C.Hall]; Perseverance [Clarke]; The Curate's Favourite Scholar [Mary Howitt]; The Remarkable Nigger and three more verse tales [F.W.N.Bailey]; Little Chatterbox [Mrs S.C.Hall]; Picture of the Virgin [Mary Howitt]; Savoyard Boy and his Sister [J.D.Haas, after Hermann Kletke]; Adventures of Jack Holyday [Albert Smith]; Glory [Thomas Gaspey]. The majority of the plates seem to be by John Absalon. The pagination at the end of three of the stories is erratic, or rather erroneous, but the texts are complete. Two of the verse-tales by F.W.N.Bailey are so overtly racist that it's hard to imagine how they would have appealed to the same readership as Clarke or Howitt, but this is perhaps a lesson this compilation inadvertently teaches.
