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.

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.

. to Professor Jean Seznec, Oxford University. On note paper with the address Villa Mauresque. St. Jean - Cap Ferrat, A.M. He acknowledges receipt of Seznec's inaugural lecture.
¶ Maugham was born in Paris. He was noted as an expert storyteller and a master of fiction technique. An introverted child afflicted with a stammer, Maugham was orphaned at 10 and sent to live with his uncle, a vicar. Although he later studied medicine and completed his internship, he never practiced, having decided at an early age to devote himself to literature. He lived in grand style, spending much of his life on the French Riviera and traveling widely, particularly to East Asia and the South Pacific.

¶ August Aimé Balkema, After studying French literature, in 1936 opened a bookstore in the Huis aan de Drie Grachten ("House on Three Canals") in Amsterdam. During the Second World War, the bookstore was used to clandestinely print and publish works of poetry and other literature. In the series De Vijf Ponden Pers, which Balkema started in 1942, fifty works were published during the war, including works by Dutch poets like A. Roland Holst and Martinus Nijhoff as well as books in English and French, languages banned by the German occupiers. The prominent typographer Jan van Krimpen handled many of these publications. In 1945 Balkema published a catalogue of the series under the name Catalogus van vijftig boeken en boekjes zonder toestemming uitgeven in de jaren 1942-1945 ("Catalogue of fifty books published without permission in the years 1942-1945").[In 1943 Balkema, along with Adriaan Morriën en Fred Batten, started the series Het Zwarte Schaap. After the war, this series was taken over by the publishing house De Bezige Bij.

Hirth, very small 19th. C. oval lib. stamp at foot of title-pages. A key study of the subject which influenced generation upon generation of antiquaries, scholars, and poets, augmented in this edition, including a long essay (c.250pp.) "Memoires historiques sur la Chasse".Some passages in this particular set have been whitened with chalk, making them a little harder to read but not illegible; we could have had these chalk marks removed but, we surmise that they may have been made in preparing a new edition of the work, and did not wish to detract from its historical and bibliographical value.

Six volumes bound in three, Napoli, Angelo Trani, 1810; 6mo (c. 9 x 14 cm.); cont. half calf, spines gilt-ruled with ornament in blind, double red morocco labels; rubbed and worn, some headbands or tailbands a little chipped. An attractive set, each volume with the book-binder's ticket of Thomas Rigden of Dover [Ramsden, p. 140 (also half calf, gilt)], and the slightly later ownership entry on the title-pages "Frampton, Malta, 1828". 1810 was the notorious year in the author's life when her newly completed "De l'Allemagne", though passed by the Paris censor, was nevertheless seized and suppressed. This may possibly have have been the occasion for the Naples publisher to issue the romance "Corinne", which was first published in Italian in Firenze, in 1808.
