Burke, John., Illustrated by: Engraved Plates  
[Heraldic Illustrations with Explanatory Pedigrees; half-title] Heraldic Illustrations Comprising the Armorial Bearings of the Principal Families of the Empire; with Pedigrees and Annotations (VOL II)

Publisher: Edward Churton London: 1845.
VOL 2 ONLY (of three). 9 ¾ x 7 inches, ¾ dark brown fine leather with five raised bands, gilt spine titles and rulings, fine marbled boards and endpapers, top edge gilt. No page numbers. Fine engraved plates illustrating heraldic crests throughout. There is a "II" stamped on the spine, but no indication in the printed information that this is a second volume. (The plate numbers and Library of Congress listing bear this out, however.) The engraved bookplate of San Francisco socialite and benefactor, Maud Lee Flood, is affixed to the front pastedown. The bookplate depicts Linden Towers, Menlo California. Frontis engraving of the heraldic device of the Most Noble Hugh Perry, Duke of Northumberland, Knight of the Garter. Folding plate and engraved plates of heraldic devices LIV-CIII (54-103) complete and intact. CONDITION: This book is in better then very good condition. The original binding is sound and has some edgewear, with one corner tip rubbed through. There is slight discoloration to thin strips along marbled paper edges from contact with or proximity to leather. Several pages have short underlines or marginal notes in pencil. Very light toning to a few page edges. Very scarce, especially in the original binding in such excellent condition. ABOUT THE BOOKPLATE (association): James Leary Flood was the son of James Clair Flood, a saloon keeper who part-owned the Nevada Comstock Lode with William S. O'Brian. Maud Lee (Fritz) married James Leary Flood after the death of his first wife, Rose, who was also Maud's sister. Maud, whose husband died in the late 1920s, deeded the Flood mansion to the nuns of the Sacred Heart who turned the building into a school, now called the Convent of the Sacred Heart, in 1938. Maud then lived in the penthouse suite at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel until her death in 1966. The "Linden Towers" of the bookplate represents the Menlo Park estate of James Clair Flood, built and furnished to lavish proportions with his Comstock fortune. It passed down through the family. Following the death of James L. Flood, the estate was apportioned to heirs including one Constance May Gavin, whose suit as a daughter of James L. was recognized by the court. The furnishings were dispersed, and the mansion (known locally as The White Castle) was torn down in 1934.

Whistler, James McNeill, 1834-1903  
Whistler v. Ruskin. Art & Art Critics
 Picture
Publisher: London: Chatto & Windus [1879?]. 'Third edition'.
17 p.; 19 cm. Printed brown paper cover; below Whistler’s name & address is the date "Dec. 24, 1878." With this is bound Mr. Whistler’s 'Ten o'Clock' (a talk delivered by James McNeill Whistler in London, February 1885), published in London by Chatto & Windus in 1888. Publisher’s device on title-page and on last leaf of the first title. "The 1878 libel suit of Whistler v Ruskin, which elucidated the conflict between the newly formed aesthetic movement and the Victorian ideal of art, embodies the struggle between the establishment and a new worldview. It is yet another example of the reluctance with which the old makes way for the new. In this case, the conflict was played out on the stage of aesthetics and morality in late Victorian England. John Ruskin represented all that was essentially Victorian in both theory and virtue, whereas James Abbott McNeill Whistler illustrated what was to be the vanguard of modernity in art practice and theory." Both works are signed twice in Whistler's "butterfly" signature. They are bound together in simple full leather by Zaehnsdorf with the bookplate of George G. T. Treherne and the original wrappers bound in. A prize copy of a notorious icon of modern art theory. Stock#OB681.
