BUSCH, WILHELM,
Max and Moritz.
. A Story in Seven Tricks. Munich: Braun & Schneider, London: A.N.Myers && Co. n.d. [c. 1870]; [iv], 53pp. printed on one side of every leaf, with two or three hand-coloured vignettes after the author on nearly every page, publisher's list printed on the endpapers; publisher's olive-green cloth, decorated and illustrated in black and gilt;THE INITIAL CONDITION WAS: splits to hinges with slight losses at head and tail of spine, rear board partly faded, inner joints split, stitching defective to first gathering, hence front endpaper and first four pages detached, page 8 detached and chipped at edges, THEN RE-BACKED AND THE OLD SPINE LAID DOWN. slight embrowning, owner's name - Dorothy E. Hart in top margin of title-page, lacking rear free endpaper. Rare edition in English of one of Germany's most famous and most successful children's books. Wilhelm Busch owed his immense and lasting success to his humour and illustrations. Apparently the first translation into English was by C.T.Brooks, and was published in Boston in 1871; the British Library's copy of the anonymous translation we are offering, published with Busch's original illustrations and colouring by his original publisher, is dated 1874, but our copy is undated. We think it is of the 1870s, or just possibly early 1880s. No edition in Osborne.

LANGDALE, CHARLES,

A very good copy in a fine Riviere binding, showing only minimal wear at one or two extremities. The frontispiece is engraved after a portrait by Richard Cosway. A fine association copy: Fritz Ponsonby, K.C.B. K.C.V.O. G.C.V.O. later Baron Syonsby, was a distinguished soldier, the historian of the Grenadier Guards in the Great War, and a courtier who held a succession of offices in the Courts of Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and George V. His autobiography was entitled "Recollections of Three Reigns". This memoir will have appealed to him as a holder of responsibility at a later Royal Court, but also on account of his family connections with the court it refers to. His great grandfather was the third Earl of Bessborough, his grandfather General Sir Frederick Ponsonby, a veteran of Waterloo, and his grandfather's sister Lady Caroline Lamb. The Ponsonby book-plate shows a shelf of partly-open books before a latticed window opening onto a flowery garden, with the motto "Reading maketh a full man", and is a fine etching, with deep contrasts, monogrammed in the plate W.P.B.
