Lot: 314 - [BOOK OF HOURS]. A Decorated Prayer Book. (France: Second half of the 17th century or later).  

[BOOK OF HOURS]. A Decorated Prayer Book. (France: Second half of the 17th century or later).   11 x 9 inches (267 x 235 mm). 15 unnumbered leaves (f. 1-12 vellum; f. 13-15 paper; f. 16-17 missing). Single column, about 11 lines per page, in neat hand. Decoration unfinished on ff. 2r, 4v "“ 9r, 11v- 12v. (Quire 1 [f. 1-6] detached, some discoloring and warping.) Near contemporary leather and paper binding, coat of arms is affixed to upper cover depicting a knight 's helmet above a green painted shield, presenting a rooster resting atop a castle, flanked by two lions and three fleur-di-lies painted in gold-yellow on a red field (Spine perished, overall wear). A unique manuscript which appears to have been created some time reigns of either Louis XIII [1601-1643] or Louis XIV [1638-1715] of France. The special deference paid to 3 Counter-Reformation saints [The St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen [1577-1622], St. Felix on Cantalice [1515-1587], and St. Joseph of Leonessa [1556-1612]] helps place the prayer book somewhere in the 17th or very early 18th century and calls to mind the religious and political chaos which plagued Europe 's long 17th century. The manuscript 's repeated attempts to link Bourbon supremacy with the legendary rule of St. Louis IX [1214-1270], also reflect this uncertainty. While the book 's decoration shares some similarities with Baroque ornamentation, and the style of its script matches Getty Ms. 11a, another decorated book attributed to Louis XIV, this manuscript is distinctively more rugged. Meaning it is unlikely this book was executed for someone in the immediate orbit of the royal court. Complete contents and information available on request.

It was a popular work among the writers of that day, and which had been translated by Chaucer. Indeed it would be difficult to find, out of the sacred writings, a more admirable text book for meditation under misfortune. It is the legacy of a noble and enduring spirit, fortified by sorrow and suffering, bequeathing to all its successors in calamity, the stores of eloquent but simple reasoning, by which it was enabled to bear up   against the various ills of life, it is a talisman which the unfortunate may treasure in his bosom, or like the good King James, lay it nightly on his pillow.

Comenius was an important figure in the field of education. He wrote many books on education, many were translated into a variety of languages, such as the present work, which was translated from the original Latin and High Dutch by Charles Hoole in 1659 from the twelfth London edition with corrections and enlarged. "His universal importance rests on the pedagogic theories and writings of educations from the ages of four to twenty-four (Didactica, written 1632, published 1657)" (PMM).

'And she was right,' Clemens conceded. The first 'doe-luncheon' on 14 January 1908 was a great success. 'I was the only lady of my sex present,' Clemens reported modestly" (see "Mark Twain at Play," The Bancroft Library, 2010). Twain organized a second doe-lunch for 11 February 1908, and in addition to Riggs, other attendees included a young Ethel Barrymore, and Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Because, although Coutts 's were so prompt and polite last time, still they did say "˜that it wasn 't the kind of note ' &c &c - as I wrote you at the time. Indeed, I remember to have often heard that they avoid discounting: not having that kind of insurers[?].    I wish to Heaven you could think of any other way. I will come down today, between 2 and 3.    I have not seen [Thomas James] Thomson yet. He wrote that he was coming. Likewise that his house had not bedrooms enough for all[?] - and talking wildly about Houses near Belgrave Square!! Faithfully Always / CD."    A fine letter to his close friend and solicitor, Thomas Mitton. Dickens wrote Mitton the previous day: "I am very much and pressingly in want of a hundred pounds until June. Though the time is short, my father 's debts, two quarters income tax &c, coming all at once, drive me, sailing so near the wind by not drawing any profits from C[hapman] and H[all], into a most [un]comfortable corner. Ca[n you oblige] me with this, or devise any [means of doing so?"¦" (Letters, 17 April 1844, pp. 107-08).    This letter might conversely relate to Mitton's purchase of a share in the legal firm of Smithson and Dunn [later Smithson, Dunn and Mitton].

FIRST EDITION OF HEMINGWAY'S FIRST NOVEL. Hemingway's earlier works established his reputation in literary circles, but by 1925, he had not gained broader public recognition, which he attributed to his restrictive contract with Boni and Liveright, who published his earlier works. He wrote Torrents of Spring in a few weeks in November of 1925, and Boni and Liveright rejected it quickly.   "I have known all along," Hemingway wrote Fitzgerald, that the firm "could not and would not be able to publish it as it makes a bum out of their present ace and best seller Anderson" (Selected Letters, p. 183).   The contract broken, Hemingway signed with Scribners, and The Torrents of Spring was published on 28 May 1926.

Lot: 457 - POE, Edgar Allan (1809-1849). "The Raven" in: The American Review: A Whig Journal. Vol. I, Nos. 1-6. New York: Wiley & Putnam, 1845.  

POE, Edgar Allan (1809-1849). "The Raven" in: The American Review: A Whig Journal. Vol. I, Nos. 1-6.

Heartman and Canny consider this to be the first printing of "The Raven," but which appearance came first is a bit of a dispute. Heartman and Canny maintain that the 29 January 1845 appearance in The Evening Mirror is not the first printing, since The American Review announced that "No. II will bear date Feb. 1845, but will be issue early in January." Unless the publishers were unable to issued the work as promised, the appearance in The American Review predates the later January appearance in The Evening Mirror.   See Heartman and Canny, p.145.

Contemporary tree calf, smooth spines gilt, red morocco lettering-pieces gilt (hinges starting, some with old repairs, overall wear).  FIRST EDITION. Bruce of Kinnaird had studied Arabic and Ethiopic and was British Consul at Algiers. Believing the source of the Nile to be somewhere in Abyssinia, Bruce travelled from the Red Sea coast (near present day Eritrea) and reached Gondar where he spent three years at the royal court. By 1770 he had jointed an expeditionary force which brought him within reach of his goal -- to the spring south of Lake Tana form which the Blue Nile rises -- and was forever convinced this was the source of the main Nile. He remained in the Sudan and Egypt until returning to Scotland in 1773, but disillusioned by the reception he received there, did not publish his journals until 1790. It is however "one of the most splendid narratives in the literature of African explorations" (Hallett, Africa to 1815).

Modern half calf over green cloth gilt, smooth spine gilt, 3 black morocco lettering-pieces gilt, edges faintly marbled, marbled endsheets (chipping to lettering-piece, some small scuffs). Provenance: W. Conway (signature).  FIRST EDITION of important explorations in Africa. The first volume is an official expedition to discover the course of the Niger from the starting point of Tripoli, rather than West Africa. Clapperton and Oudney were the original members of the party, to which Denham was added, but whose "arrogance, malice, and contempt for his colleagues from the start soured relations between them" (DNB). This famous "Bornu Mission" provided the earliest European report on the Central Sudan and Northern Nigeria. From the Mediterranean they reached Murzuk and Bornu on the west of Lake Chad, and eventually Sokota. Failing to ascertain the source and termination of the Niger, Denham explored Lake Chad, and Oudney and Clapperton journeyed westward to the Niger. Clapperton continued alone after Oudney's death at Murmur, reaching Sokota and rejoining Denham at Kuka. On the second expedition Clapperton had been promoted to Commander and was sent back to Sokota to open up trade with the west coast. He died in 1827, having crossed Yoruba Country and the Niger. He was survived by his "servant" Richard Lander who carried on alone. Lander brought Clapperton's journals back to England and wrote the "Life of Clapperton" which appears in this second work.
