CARROLL (Lewis): FINE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF XIE KITCHIN
IN WHITE HAT AND COAT, as "Dane", albumen print, sepia, 102mm x 141mm mounted on card 108mm x 163mm with Carroll's own identification number 2132 in his manuscript in purple ink on verso. A very good example, c.1873. Photograph available on request. See CARROLL'S JOURNAL ENTRY: "Photographed Xie in winter dress (Danish), in red petticoat, and in Greek dress." May 14, 1873. See LETTER: from Carroll to Mrs Kitchin: "[Christ Church, Oxford] Saturday [? May 17, 1873] Dear Mrs Kitchin, Here are prints of the Danish dress and the red petticoat. I am taking the negatives with me, and will get a light print done of the Dane for you to get tinted for the Princess. Oh that it would only suggest to her the idea of sitting herself! That has been for years my great ambition in life, which, once accomplished, I should thence-forward look with scorn on Xie and all un-royal subjects for the camera! Gratefully yours, C.L. Dodgson".Lewis Carroll was not simply the author of the world's most famous books for children and an important mathematician whose work was well ahead of its time, but he was also an important pioneer photographer of considerable accomplishment. His photographs, particularly of children, show Carroll at his most sentimental; even, for some of his modern audience, in a interesting erotic light. Carroll abandoned photography in 1880.

CARROLL (Lewis): THE PRINCIPLES OF PARLIAMENTARY REPRESENTATION,
First Private Edition, 8vo, stitched without wrappers as issued, a very good copy, ONE OF 150 COPIES for private distrubution, [London], Harrison and Sons, 1884.WMGC, 168; "A contribution to the controversy which occupied some months in the newspapers of 1884 about Parliamentary Representation. The four chapters deal with Desiderata, Electoral Districts and Elections, and (the last) a summary of practical details. Principles, statistics, tables, and algebra are all brought in to support Proportional Representation." The final form of the piece was not perfected until 1885 when Carroll distributed copies to all Members of Parliament. All editions are very rare; a "published" edition, with some slight alterations, appeared the same year. No other copy than the Falletta copy (Nov 2005; £4,200) has been offered at auction since 1947; that copy, although inscribed by Carroll, had a "spotted and stained" half title; the present copy is clean and bright throughout. Photograph available on request. (Book ref. 19157)   £2950.00

CARROLL (Lewis - C. L. Dodgson): Euclid and his Modern Rivals,
First Edition, xxxi, 299pp octavo complete with half title, THE CARROLL BIBLIOGRAPHER FALCONER MADAN'S COPY with his neat stamp on verso of title: "F. MADAN B[RASE] N[OSE] C[OLLEGE] OXFORD", rehinged with original spine skilfully laid down, a fine copy in original cloth, London, Macmillan, 1879. WMGC, 128. "One of the outstanding examples of serious argument cast in an amusing style, designed to prove that for elementary geometry a revised Euclid is better than any proposed modern substitute. The form is dramatic: Minos and Rhadamanthus ... sit in judgement on twelve Euclid-wreckers and their manuals, and much fun results, with comic but conclusive discomfitures of all kinds ... This is a most elaborate mathematical work produced by Dodgson, and at the same time a piece of literature.." (WMGC p.102). Madan was a formidable bibliographer and brought Carroll scholarship into the modern era. Other books from his collection have occasionally surfaced but they are rare. The book, essential to any serious Carroll collection, is uncommon, especially in a first edition. Photograph available on request. (Book ref. 17885)   £1200.00
