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.

Album Claudel . Iconographie Commentée
. 2011, 304 pages, 322 illustrations The 50th volume in the series Albums de la Pléiade Gallimard -bio. the publisher's description: « S'il est un écrivain que l'image, renchérissant sur les commentaires souvent peu amènes de ses contemporains, aura plutôt desservi, c'est bien Paul Claudel. En bicorne ou tête nue, la face auréolée d'un bon sourire ou sobre et sombre comme une vertu, l'assise est sculpturale et satisfaite. Elle rappelle davantage un notaire de province que le poète souverainement marginal qu'il fut et demeure. Rien pourtant ne l'a jamais fait se détourner de l'objectif. Au contraire, Claudel a toujours l'air de s'y prêter sans vergogne, sinon sans complaisance, en familier de l'autodérision, aussi naturel en apparence dans la pose en son grand âge qu'en son adolescence, à l'heure où sa sœur Camille se faisait la main en le prenant pour modèle. Et lorsqu'il se fut, à son tour, quelque peu initié à la magie de « cet appareil à éternité qu'est la boîte photographique », il s'y adonna avec une gourmandise toute enfantine . Il y a cent ans cette année, Paul Claudel inaugurait en l'illustrant d'un grand livre la naissance des Éditions Gallimard (L'Otage, mai 1911). Nous avons tenté de dégager de la masse des documents mis à notre disposition de quoi dresser un portrait rafraîchi et aussi ressemblant que contrasté de cet homme-orchestre tumultueux qui faisait danser comme personne sur les planches les images d'une vie abouchée à l'Absolu. » in the usual full richly decorated calf leather binding protected by transparent jacket and in printed/illustrated slip case.

Discours Academiques
0. suivis des discours prononcés pour la distribution des prix au concours generale de l'Université et devant diverses sociétés réligieuses, et de trois essais de philosophie littéraire et politique. Paris, Didier, 1861; iv, 424 pp.; contemporary morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt with raised bands; corners a little worn, short, barely visible split to front joint, edges minimally rubbed, slight foxing, mostly confined to first few pages and last gatherings. Signed presentation copy of the first edition of this collection of papers, some of which date back as far as the eighteen-twenties. The three essays which follow the addresses are on "Encyclopédie" - 58 pages including a well-researched historical bibliography of encyclopedias published in Europe - "Abrégé", and "Élections" (on political elections, c. 40 pp.). This copy was inscribed, signed and given as a birthday present to the English woman of letters Charlotte Mary Yonge. author of family and historical novels and of children's books, popular educator, and devout Anglican. It's possible that the blue silk bookmark, now at page 223, the beginning of an address to the "Société Biblique Protestante" on 30th April 1851, was left there by her or by the author. Several further addresses concern religious instruction or education. A very attractive association copy, which documents an Anglo-French friendship, and is itself a document of French history as well as of Victorian history.
